Mozambique result was a total embarrassment, It shouldn’t repeat in future, warns Minister
Sports Minister Moses Mawere has warned Chipolopolo Boys technical bench led by Wedson ‘Wada Wada’ Nyirenda that it’s time to start delivering ‘good results’.
And Mawere has warned that a result like the 1-0 defeat to Mozambique ‘should never repeat in future.’
“We don’t want to see results like the ones we saw in Ndola when we played Mozambique. That was a total embarrassment and it should not repeat in future,” Mawere warned
Wada Wada has come under pressure after Zambia’s home defeat to Mozambique in the first match of the Cameroon 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
They [technical bench] should not bury their heads in the sand. Government is spending a lot of money on the senior national team and what we want to see are good results,” Mawere said
The former Zesco United trainer is yet to register a win a competitive match since he was appointed last year.
Zambia also lost at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium last year to Nigeria in a World Cup qualifier and the 2012 African Cup of Nations winners are 5 points behind the Super Eagles for the race to Russia.
On the FIFA Rankings, Zambia is placed 99 and 25 in the World and Africa respectively, it is the worst.
“They [technical bench] should not bury their heads in the sand. Government is spending a lot of money on the senior national team and what we want to see are good results,” Mawere said
Zambia face Botswana this weekend in the quarter finals of the Cosafa Cup.
