We especially wanted to give chance to the boys from UK because one of them (Lifumpa) is having a challenge in adapting but Mwiya is readily available even for Saturday depending on how we will train and as you have seen he even scored, ” He said.
” He (Lifumpa) has everything but just the adaptation is what is a challenge. Even after yesterdays training he came to me and said this is what feeling coach and I told him that with time it will pass,” He added.
Mwiya started the friendly against Red Arrows and scored a goal as the team succumbed to a three goals to two defeat at Nkoloma Stadium this afternoon. Lifumpa was introduced in the second half and had a run out on the pitch as the teams intensifies preparation for the return leg against Rwanda.
