Harambee Starlets head coach David Ouma has blamed her charges for not defending well in their 2-2 draw against Zambia on Friday.
Starlets hosted the She Polopolo at the MISC Kasarani in an Olympic Qualifier but had to settle for a draw after some good display from the visitors but according to Ouma, his team could have done better.
“We had set not to concede in this game but football can have different dynamics. We took some risk after they scored and went ahead 2-1 but again I think we could have defended better today.
"They have good physical players who play direct football as we had anticipated and we had a duty to minimize their abilities which we didn’t. It is something we have to work on heading into the second leg,” Ouma said after the match.
Ouma further exuded confidence in the tie saying his team always with less pressure when they are away from home and is sure that they will get a goal in the return leg.
“We have had better away games in the qualification process. It is possible that we can score a goal away from home and since they will be under pressure as the hosts, we will need to be composed and have the mental strength to get a result there,” he added.
The second leg of the tie is slated for Nkoloma Stadium on Monday 11 November with the aggregate winner meeting Ivory Coast or Cameroon in the final qualifying round.
