Afcon: It was a bad day in the office for Zimbabwe – coach

Zimbabwe head coach Sunday Chidzambwa admitted his side has to do better in front of the goal to stand a chance of winning their final Africa Cup of Nations Group A game against Democratic Republic of Congo.

Zimbabwe Warriors head coach Sunday Chidzambwa says his charges did not rise for the occasion in the 4-0 mauling against DR Congo on Sunday night.

The Warriors came into the game aiming at getting maximum points to stand a chance of making it out of the Group A of the Africa Cup of Nations finals but things did not go as planned.

Goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze had the worst game and was at fault for the three DR Congo goals. Coach Chidzambwa says all departments flopped and that is why things were bad for his charges.

“We have had a very bad day in office, we didn’t play well in all the departments,” he told Zimeye.

“We also had to change the goalkeeper because our first choice got injured, but it’s not an excuse as we played badly and conceded soft goals.

“It was a bad performance on our part in all departments, and I think we need to go home and find a way forward,” he concluded.

The Warriors have not had an easy tournament both on and off the pitch, and they return home with just a point collected from the 1-1 draw with Uganda Cranes.
