Zambian’s coach Herve Renard should learn a lesson: pride goes before fall.
Thanks to the useless Egyptian referee they got a 1-1 draw against Nigeria. But Nigeria has not been superb in this tournament.
Zambian drew all their 3 games making them one of the weakest footballing nation in Africa this year, 2013.
Indeed they won the championship in 2011 but you can tell that their performance has been a taint on African football.
What I have seen this year is less fancy to what I saw even in 1994 and 1996.
It seems that African football is on a decline.
Africans need to look into their game and find out how to improve their games and style generally.
The games have been rough and the pitches have been terrible. The balls are bouncing all the time and it is difficult to see the formations.
Teams like Zambia that won 2 years ago and played so badly this year should go back to the round table and find the way forward.
Nigeria with her all stars and glorious past can do much better than what she has done this year.
In general, one would look forward to a better future for African football. One expects something better than what we are seeing now.
