“The U23 AFCON was a learning experience for a lot of us. We’re sorry to have let the nation down. It’s time to pick ourselves up and bounce back. As always I’m proud to represent Zambia and will give it my all today.”

His counterpart, Patson Daka also took to social media to say he was disappointed that the team could not progress past the group stage.

“I’m disappointed not to have progressed further at the U23 AFCON. The entire experience was great and lessons have been learned. Time to shift my attention to the senior Zambia team. Today we go again!.”

    The Coach Chambeshi is the one who is supposed to be in the frint apologising the bark stops with him. His tactics and team selection is the reason we were knocked out.
