Zambia head coach, Avram Grant was left disappointed in their draw against Tanzania on Sunday in the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023.
Grant’s men scored late to get a point from the game but was not impressed with his team despite acknowledging how strong Tanzania were in the game.
“It’s a disappointing result. We knew it wouldn’t be an easy match after watching Tanzania’s match against Morocco. It’s true that we started well too but we conceded a goal quickly and that changed our tactics especially after the red card,” he said.
The 2015 TotalEnergies CAF AFCON finalist admitted playing with 10 men for the greater part of the game had an impact on them.
“It’s difficult to play with ten players. But I’m happy with the boys’ reaction. They gave everything to come back.”
Zambia have a game more to play against 2022 FIFA World Cup semi finalist and favorites, Morocco.
