Zambia was the best attacking team at COSAFA-Chambeshi
Zambia national team stand in coach Beston Chambeshi has crowned his team as the best attack minded squad at the just ended COSAFA Castle Cup in Limpopo South Africa.
Chambeshi is however concerned with the low conversion rate of the team which he wants the players to work on.
“Am happy with our attacking system . We were the only team attacking anyhow especially when we played Madagascar we could easily beaten them by six nil, We were totally on them. We just need to work on finishing and we need to tell the players to take more responsibility when near the goal, ” He said.
Chambeshi also believes that his team fought hard for the COSAFA Castle Cup title which they lost by four goals to two in the final to Zimbabwe.
Chambeshi explained that Zimbabwe had to switch to long balls for them to equalise as they had tall players compared to his defenders.
” We were leading by two goals to one until towards the end when they switched their tactics to long balls and you could see my left back and right back (Shemmy Mayembe and Martin Kaonga) were short boys and Zimbabwe wingers were tall which was a plus for them and they had to equalise. Otherwise taking Zimbabwe to extra time was a plus for us at least we fought for that game,” He said.
The team arrived back home on Sunday, June 10th aboard Rwanda Air at 18:45 hours and were welcomed by secretariat staff led by acting General Secretary David Tembo and Head of Administration Andrew Siame.
