WINDHOEK, 10 FEB (NAMPA) – Black Africa Football Club (FC) coach Brian Isaacs says his players lacked concentration in their 3-0 defeat against Kaizer Chiefs in Johannesburg on Saturday.
“The mistake from our side is that we lost the game, but we are ready for the return leg and will not disappoint our fans,” he told Nampa in an interview on Monday.
Black Africa (BA) returned from South Africa on Sunday, and commenced training on Monday.
The match was the first leg of the two teams’ Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League preliminary rounds.
The second leg is scheduled for the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday.
Isaacs, however, commended his players for a good performance, saying that even though they lost the game they showed they are capable of facing teams like Kaizer Chiefs, or even bigger teams.
He said his players started off very nervously in the first half, but started the second half determined and improved their play.
Isaacs said the first goal by Chiefs was a mistake from his players, while the second and third goals were a result of a lack of communication between the BA defence and the goalkeeper.
