Following a fantastic run at the 2018 CAF African Nations Championship tournament in Morocco, Zambian assistant coach Aggrey Chiyangi admits they are disappointed with their failure to beat Sudan.
The Chipolopolo suffered a 1-0 loss on Saturday to end their participation at the continental showpiece, but Chiyangi has credited their opponents.
A goal from Malik Saifeldin for the Falcons of Jediane will see them facing the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Wednesday as they battle for a spot in the final.
“It was a tough game. We have lost and the one thing we didn’t do was to score. We created many chances but failed to make them count,” Chiyangwa said to the CAF website.
“Playing against Sudan, a team that plays together was going to be difficult. The good thing was that we created chances.
“Our mission was to go beyond the quarters and we have failed to achieve that.
“We have given up and will be looking forward to the next matches (CAF AFCON Qualifiers). It was 50-50 but we failed in certain aspects and did not play the way we expected.”
