Chipolopolo needs more friendlies, says Asanovic

Chipolopolo Coach Aljosa Asanovic says the Zambia National Football Team will need more friendly games to shape up for major qualifiers and tournaments coming.

Asanovic said this after his side lost 1-0 to Copperbelt select side in a friendly match played at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

He said most local players lack energy levels hence the need for more practice matches to prepare adequately for upcoming qualifiers.

Asanovic is however happy that the Football Association of Zambia -FAZ- is organising such games to help shape up the team.

He said despite the low energy levels, he still has hope most of the local players selected can still do better combined with other already tried players.

Meanwhile, Copperbelt select side coach Dabid Chilufya who led The Rest side appealed to the Football Association of Zambia to continue with such arrangements as that will give the Coach an opportunity to know more players.

Copperbelt select side Defender Moses Soko scored from a Rodgers Lukonde header to give the Dabid Chilufya’s side a 1-Nil victory.
