Haalubono Picks Positives After Green Buffaloes Champions League Exit

Despite failing to make to the knockout phases of the CAF Women’s Champions League, Green Buffaloes coach Charles Haalubono reveled about the experience picked by the ladies.

The Zambian army side suffered an exit in the group stages of the competition at the hands of Simba Queens from Tanzania in the final pool game.

Haalubono said although he was disappointed by the elimination, there were positive lessons from the competition.

“We came here to learn, and our target was to reach the semi-finals because we are going to play more games. However, it was good for us even at this level we have come to meet different teams with different experiences and exposure,” he reflected.

“It was the first competition for us and our players as some of them are playing for the first time. So they just find it tricky to adjust to the tournament and environment. It is a very good exposure for us.”

Haalubono said their approach to the game against Simba failed to work well and admitted that the opponents gave them a tough challenge.

“It is a bit difficult to explain I think the girls tried but were not good enough. We didn’t create enough scoring opportunities. This was the problem we had,” the 43-year-old coach added.

“Our opponents got few chances and utilised them. We did our best but it was not close to what was required for us to win.”

With the hopes in their final game against Simba who beat Determine Girls 2-0 in their second match , Green Buffaloes suffered a 2-0 defeat as they exited the competition.

The Zambian Women’s League champions will now focus their attention on the league as they look to capture the retain championship title.
