  14. I must commend the team today play better and there was some food flowing passes
    Going forward we are ever improving
    Just the right and left full backs are plangas
    More especially kapumbu
    Wada today was on point the way he psyched the boys the attitude was great keep it up boys and technical bench
    The other observation is either ivory coast mapulanga or this chipo has improved compared to the way we play against Uganda
    And I think Uganda will qualify if they sort themselves well
