As Africa’s prestigious 32 day tournament swings into play this week in Equilateral Guinea, AmaZulu international players’ will like the rest of South Africans to look to their TV sets to be part of the football action.
But Malawian Moses Chavula, Zimbabwean Ramson Zhuwawo and Bukasa Kasonga of the DRC all admit that despite their waned interest in the 16 team tournament they will still enjoy the soccer.
Soft spoken yet tough as nails left-back, Moses Chavula is not hundred percent sure who his money is on in this year’s edition but says he hopes teams who want it the most will want to show their intentions early.
“It is unfortunate and disappointing that we didn’t qualify. The AFCON is the biggest tournament in Africa and it’s disappointing that we didn’t make it like in the previous edition.
There are teams who are there for the first time, they will be underdogs and that will make things interesting
I hope they learn from us in the qualifiers. We should’ve won our games when we had the time and we ended up getting lots of draws which were not enough to see us through,” said the man nicknamed Luba.
There won’t be any fireworks also for the equator lying DRC.
Defender Bukasa Kasonga told AmaZulufc.net he is content with his country’s achievements but says major improvements in the future are needed.
“I think the technical staff now is trying to select the right players that will help us for the qualifiers in 2013. At least now for me, I think Ghana might win it,” said Kasonga.
