Simba Queens hunt Liberian Girls today

SIMBA Queens Head Coach Charles Lukula has maintained that his charges are in good shape ready to downsize Determine Girls of Liberia in their CAF Women’s Champions League in Morocco today.

They meet in the second match of the contest after launching the campaign in low tone as they both lost their openers.

The Queens went down 1-0 to AS FAR FC of Morocco whereas the Liberian Girls suffered a 4-0 loss to Green Buffaloes of Zambia.

“To say the truth, I have a strong belief that we are going to reach the finals and possibly win the title. Losing 1-0 in our opening match, my players have learnt many things which are vital to enable us to emerge victorious,” Lukula said.

He then urged their fans to keep supporting the team as they fight for the country and that they will do whatever necessary to make the team’s objective of reaching the finals materialised.

As it stands in group A, Green Buffaloes lead the table with three points so AS FAR who sit second with three points while Simba Queens and Determine Girls fill the remaining slots point-less and win-less.

Reacting after the 1-0 slump from AS FAR, Lukula said: “We were on top of the game, controlling it very well but could not manage to score…I think my players lacked experience in comparison with the hosting side.

“But, basing on the way we played, I can assure that we are going to reach the finals, I have that feeling of doing well and go all the way to the finals,” said the team’s Head Coach Charles Lukula.

On her part, one of the key players of Lukula’s squad Fatuma Issa insisted that they will try to sort out mistakes which emerged in their opening game to do well tomorrow.

“As you saw, we had a great match only that it was not written in the sky for us to produce the victory…we still have two fixtures to play before winding up the group stage campaign hence enough room to improve,” she said.
