Zambia National Team coach Sven Vandenbroek is alive to the fact that the game against Mozambique is a must a win.
The former Cameroon assistant coach is however concerned with the lack of mental strength in his players. Sven believes is a general Zambia thing as people in the country are too ‘nice’.
“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.
” We too kind in not making necessary fouls in the game. I would like to see some more aggressiveness,” he said.
Sven has refused to bank on past glory which shows that Mozambique has been a good hunting ground for Chipolopolo. He is however expecting a tough match come Sunday 18th November.
“That’s three and seven years ago, Statistically yes it’s an advantage but the circumstances and the squads are different. I can’t compare the level of Mozambique then and now. Personally it does not interest me, ” he said.
“I expect a tight game. We will close the game not to concede in the beginning of the match, ” he added.
Zambia will face Mozambique on Match day 5 a team that beat them by a lone goal on Match day one.
