TANZANIAN senior women soccer team coach Rogasia Kaijage says it is pay-back time for Zambia as they face the Shepolopolo in the All-Africa Games (AAG) qualifier tomorrow at Lusaka’s Nkoloma Stadium.
Speaking yesterday on arrival at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) in Lusaka, the Twiga Stars coach warned Zambia of a tough encounter in Sunday’s game.
He said the team that has come back was better than last year’s which lost to Zambia 3-2 in the Africa Women Championship (AWC) qualifier.
“I know Zambia is a good team but the girls are well prepared. The Zambian team should expect a different Tanzania. We have come here to win and nothing else. These girls are better than last year,” he said.
Kaijage said he had made a few changes to the team that played Zambia last year in the AWC qualifiers.
He said that there were no injuries to the team and all the players were in good shape for the game.
Meanwhile, almost the entire Zambia senior women team has been changed with most of the players lacking experience. The Albert Kachinga coached side has only been in camp for two weeks owing to the Football Association of Zambia failure to camp the team in time.
