CHIPOLOPOLO coach Wedson Nyirenda says his players have been improving as the African Nations Championships in Morocco has progressed. Nyirenda told Fazfootball.com in Marrakech that his team would be stepping up a gear in tomorrow’s tussle against Sudan to ensure qualification to the semi-finals.
He said Sudan will be a much sterner test than previous encounters at the ongoing CHAN.
“Sudan is not a pushover team. They have been a thorn in our flesh most of the time we have played them,” Nyirenda said.
“Going into this game is not going to be easy. They gave Morocco a very good run and they are playing very well, they are highly tactical and disciplined players. I think we need to adhere to our tactical plan and rise to the occasion better than we did against Namibia and these other games.”
He said his players had been improving since the tournament began last week.
“As the games are moving to the next stages, the games are getting tougher. The teams that are remaining are doing their best, the coaches must do their best and players too,” said Nyirenda who also expressed happiness at the fortress the Grand Stade de Marrakech has been for the Chipolopolo, where the team has won all its matches played there.
Today’s match kicks off at 21:30 hours Zambian time and will be live on SuperSport.
