Green Eagles head coach Aggrey Chiyangi has described his teams' 1-1 draw with Orlando Pirates away in South Africa as a tough match.
The Kawale boys gaffer revealed that they expected the match to be tough and hence they prepared well for it. Eagles held Pirates to a one-all draw to progress to the next round of the CAF Champions League knocking out the Soweto giants.
"It was a very tough game and we knew that it was going tough because Pirates have so much experience. We prepared our team to absorb the pressure and not concede a lot of goals because we knew they would come at us especially in the first half, " he said.
"This is history for the club. The club has never competed in this competition, This is the first and reaching this far its history, " he added.
Eagles will now face Clube Desportivo 1º de Agosto of Angola who dumped out Tanzanian side KMKM to set up this mouth-watering encounter.
