The lead trainer of the local Taifa stars of Tanzania has described the 2-0 defeat suffered by his side against Zambia as a wake up call and an aid going forward.
Speaking during the post-match conversation with the media, coach
Etienne Ndairagije accepted the defeat and stated Micho’s Zambia side was equal to his but took their chances.
“The game was 50/50. Our opponent capitalised on their chances. I was prepared to meet a good team. We knew that the strength of the Zambians is from the cross. In all, it was a good game for fans. I have seen a good and talented Zambian team. Tanzania is made up of younger Stars. We are looking ahead to our next game. I congratulate my opponent coach and wish to meet him in the final.”
Going forward, the coach stated that his team will have to use the result as a stimulating factor going forward.
“I lost the battle because it is the first game. We will have to use to game to stimulate the team. With two games at hand, if we can use our strength and overlook our weaknesses, we can progress,” coach Etienne concluded.
