Zambia Women National Football Team coach Bruce Mwape has said Shepolopolo played well in the goalless draw against Cameroon at the Africa Cup in Casablanca, Morocco on Sunday night.
Speaking to FAZ Media in Morocco, Mwape said Zambia’s game plan to defend against Cameroon worked well in their opening Group B match.
“The girls put up a good fight although we were failing to keep possession when we wanted to move forward,” Mwape said.
“It is a morale booster to all of us, including the players. I must give credit to the girls they played according to our plan.”
“Even the players themselves I am sure they have gained confidence that we can actually go forward to reach the semifinals,” Mwape said.
Zambia’s next match is against Tunisia on July 6 on the same day Cameroon will face Togo.
Meanwhile, Tunisia beat Togo 4-1 in the other Group B opening match late on Sunday night.
