“it’s a must win for both teams. On one hand it’s an easy task. We can’t afford a draw. It will be a difficult task on the pitch,” he said.
“Am confident in the skills of the players and in the way we played but I feel Zambian people generally are too nice hence players lack the mental strength to overcome difficult situations during a game,” he added.
The Copper bullets boss reveled that he would like to see more aggressiveness from his players.

Zambia will face Mozambique on Match day 5 a team that beat them by a lone goal on Match day one.
