FAZ Women’s League: The race is still on – Chambeshi
With 5 games to play before the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Women’s League Copperbelt Region comes to an end, Indeni Roses Coach Benson Chambeshi believes the race for the league is still on. Chambeshi believes it’s not only about playing Zesco and Indeni in terms of whoever win between these two sides are champions but how every team accounts themselves in each match hence they will keep fighting and take each game seriously.
He, however, emphasized the fact that his team cannot afford to lose any more games so as to try and catch up with log leaders Zesco who are above them with 3 points as at Week 17.
Speaking in an interview with the ZamFoot Crew at Indeni Sports Complex in Ndola following his team’s Nil-Nil draw with Zesco United, Chambeshi described the match as tough because both teams were eyeing for a victory but he was not very happy with his team’s performance as they failed to create so many chances and did not play their usual game especially upfront.
“The game was tough knowing that each team wanted to win this game, Zesco equally came wounded they wanted to pick three points we also wanted the same points. I would say it was 50-50 game, on our side we did not create so many chances we did not even play our usual game especially upfront. We went wrong in the midfield, the distribution was not the way we have been playing then upfront we got good players but they did not play their game,” Chambeshi said.
Chambeshi was impressed with Theresa Chewe’s performance on the flanks and he also applauded his back line for putting up a good fight. Half way into the second half, Zesco United had scored but the goal was ruled out and Chambeshi felt for sure that goal should not have counted.
“In the first place that was an offside, second the goal keeper was pushed, once the goalkeeper is down as a referee you don’t play you stop the game because she was the last person. Number 1 that was an offside second the goalkeeper was pushed so with me by these two rules I feel it was not a goal for Zesco,” Chambeshi toId the ZamFoot Crew.
“Indeni is a team that is so ambitious and the sponsors are behind this team, the only thing we need is to keep on winning and the rest of the games we have to win to see how we end this season,” he added.
