COPPER Queens coach Bruce Mwape says his team will sharpen its attack which was wasteful in the 1-1 away draw to Malawi in the first leg of the Total Energies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Zambia hosts Malawi on Tuesday in the reverse fixture at Nkoloma Stadium with Mwape promising that his lasses will be more clinical in front of goal.

“Looking at the performance of the team, that is not a true reflection of the game we played. The first half, in fact the entire 90 minutes we dominated play. We created chances, we could have scored three goals in first half,” Mwape said.

He said the girls lacked concentration and patience costing them many chances.

“Our finishing was poor, if we had patience, we could have scored more goals. The game could have ended with six or seven goals. It is lack of concentration, ” he said.

Mwape said they had identified their weak links and will ratify their errors going into the return leg.

“It is still an open game. We have identified our mistakes and we would work on them. One of them is our finishing. Malawi is a good side we have played them several times. We can’t underate them,” he said.

The first leg ended 1-1 courtesy of goals from Grace Chanda (Zambia) Sabinah Thom.
