Take the games seriously- Mwamba urges Copper Queens
Zambia Women National team coach Beauty Mwamba has declared her charges ready for tomorrow’s opening group B Game against Mauritius slated for Wolfson Stadium.
Mwamba says that Margaret Belemu and Lushoomo Mweemba are back in training after having suffered minor knocks. She went on to confirm that everyone looks ready for the task ahead.
“The girls have been training well and they are well prepared for the tournament. I can confirm that Everyone has started training including the ones that had injuries, Margaret and Lushoomo,” She said.
Mwamba has tasked her girls to take the Mauritius game seriously and also not to underrate any team looking at the current growth and competition in women football.
“We have told the girls to take the game seriously because every team they are competitors, women’s football is improving so we can’t underate any team we just have to take it seriously,” she said.
The Shepolopolo are in group B alongside Mauritius, Namibia, and Botswana and Coach Mwamba feel it’s a tough group especially a threat Namibia could pose to the team having lost to them in the Women’s Afcon hence they won’t underate any team.
She has also challenged the local guns who are in the team to stand out and shine as this tournament is a place where they can market themselves in the absence of foreign-based players who are not part of the squad.
“It’s a Tough group because if you look at Namibia we once lost to them by 1-Nil during the Afcon which they Hosted. So we have been able to beat them and we also lost to them so it’s 50-50 and Botswana has improved in football so they are doing well and are a tough opposition, equally we are not underrating Mauritius so it’s a tough group we just have to do our best for us to get out of this group,” she said.
‘It’s very important to them as individuals and as a country, they have to market themselves if they want to go and play professional football. Looking at the opportunity which they have been given that the foreign-based players are not playing they have to stand in their shoes. Barbra was seen through the COSAFA for her to go to Spain, Kundananji, and Misozi also meaning they have to do their best to deserve the positions.”
Zambia Will play their first game tomorrow against Mauritius slated for Wolfson Stadium at 12:45hrs.
