Copper Queens coach Mwape salutes his players

Copper Queens coach Bruce Mwape has saluted his players for qualifying to the Paris 2024 Olympics qualifier.

Barbra Banda scored a brace to send the girls to Paris via a 3-2 aggregate over Morocco

“I think the game we played this evening was very tough. Even back home when we played them, it wasn’t easy,” Mwape said in a post match interview

“They actually managed to beat us when they came to Zambia, but we’ve managed to carry the day this evening,” he added as he highlighted Morocco’s resilience

“It’s good for our team, not only beating them but also qualifying for the Olympics, which is what we were fighting for.”

“The difference is that we’ve won 2-0 this time. When they came to Zambia, they beat us 2-1.

“But when we played in Zambia, we actually saw the tactics they were using, and we thought of making a few changes in our approach to today’s game.

“It actually paid off. In the first leg, some of the players were given rest. We had to put in new players to suit the system we wanted to use when preparing for the game,”

Zambia has been in Group C alongside USA, Germany and Australia at the Olympics
