Zambia need to adjust their tactics, says Black Queens coach

Ghana’s Black Queens coach Nora Hauptle says Zambia needs to improve their tactics.

Despite being eliminated by Zambia via a 4-3 aggregate, Ghana largely dominated both legs.

“They have very good individual players but they need to adjust their tactical screws,” she said in a post match interview following the 3-3 draw on Wednesday in Ndola.

The Copper Queens will now face Morocco in the final round of the Paris 2024 Olympics qualifier.

Morocco beat Tunisia.

  1. She’s very right. We can’t just be kicking the ball forward instead of working our way through the midfield and tactfully creating for our strikers. Bruce Mwape’s tactics are; get the ball, kick it forward to Barbra or Kundananji. This is why we fail against tactical teams because they cut off the supply. But again Mwape should be careful, she could be eyeing the Copper Queens job because she speaks passionately about them & I think she knows she can do wonders with this team.

  2. Although this ‘Tonga’ Ghanaian Coach Nora Haupitile has a point which Bruce Mwape needs to take seriously, she should also train her players to tone down on their aggression on the ball.
    Her players are a bit too rough and very hard on Zambia’s star players.
    Let players enjoy their talents and spoil it by injuring them.
    To coach Bruce Mwape, and team, work on that middle field. Look for midfielders who can work, work and work.
    Otherwise the current crop of midfielders puts too much pressure on the defence and weakens the potency of attack.

    • So far, Bruce has clearly shown that that he has no clue of what to do, he has reached his level of competency and may not be relevant anymore to modern soccer. The man is stuck to outdated style of play

  3. It’s the same problem of midfield even with senior men’s team. Grant should rely on Miguel Chaiwa as an attacking midfielder and find someone to be the defensive midfielder

  4. Faz should act because ever since 2020 we’ve been playing same style of football,, sure sure are you telling me that the team for women is still the same? The answer is no why?
    Firstly we are at top five in Africa – secondly we are fearful in the world despite losing those great margins of goals that means we considered as the best team – third we have talented players including the most expensive female player in the world that means all opponent are adequately preparing for copper queens, remind you we got beaten in the world cup due to the match we played against Germany.
    what does this mean Copper queens is no longer a small team,, this is big team we need to put pressure on people who are guiding it,
    The performance of copper queens is not the work of coaches but individual brilliance. See how disorganized they are,, we always play football like this and wins like this but what if we meet tactic teams what happened we lose 5 : 0
    Faz should act,, we know our current coach es have done there best but at this level try to ask him if this is what the experienced and international team must be playing

  5. Its time to change the coach we need an experienced technical beach, like of ghana if only we need trophyz we are on the world map now, lets be serious.

  6. Zambian Coach is clueless, its just a matter of survival now, please FAZ put him on a life salary and let him let go of that job, what different results is he going to give us apart from what we witnessed in the world cup.
    “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
