Sichone compliments Chipolopolo Boys following win over Bafana Bafana

Zambia coach Moses Sichone has complimented his side following the 2-1 win over host South Africa.

Second half goals from Golden Mashata and Albert Kangwanda secured the Chipolopolo Boys to the Cosafa Cup final.

The defending Champions had bad start after they conceded first but recovered to book a place against Lesotho in Sunday’s final.

“A big compliment to the team, they have done well today after all the analysis we did, we saw South Africa, saw their strongest points and their weaknesses. We expect another tough match against Lesotho because Lesotho is one of the experienced teams. They have been playing for so many years together, we know that the game won’t be easy,” Sichone said.

“I went in the dressing room and encouraged the boys not to look down but pick themselves up. After that the team came back strong and we managed to equalize and scored the second goal,” he said.

“I know most of the fans, more especially back home, they did not believe in these guys but these are some of the things we know in football. For me the most important thing is the players, if they are able to make the fans happy then they have done their job,” he said.
“They are aware that when they are putting on the jersey, they are not representing themselves, they are representing the whole mother Zambia.”

And his opposite number Morena Ramoreboli said the semifinal was a cagey affair that was always going to be won on mistakes.

“We the same mistake we were doing in the final third in our defence to concede the first goal and exposing the space in front of the centre backs,” he said.
“The way the game was, it was so tight that whoever made mistakes will end up losing the match. it is just unfortunate that today it was us who made those mistakes.”
