Zambia‘s goalkeeper, Toaster Nsabata, is experiencing a sense of regret after conceding a goal that gave Lesotho the lead during their Africa Cup of Nations Group H qualifier match on Thursday night. Despite the Chipolopolo‘s dominance in the game, Nsabata made a crucial error that allowed the visitors to take the lead at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The Sekhukune United goalkeeper inadvertently parried Tsoarelo Bereng‘s free-kick into his own net on the 33rd minute of the match, leaving him feeling disappointed. However, within four minutes of the mistake, striker Fashion Sakala equalized for Zambia with a well-placed grass-cutter. Subsequently, Lameck Banda scored a quick brace four minutes after his entry into the game, starting in the 53rd minute, securing a 3-1 win for Zambia.
Despite the win, Nsabata acknowledged that errors can occur even with the most seasoned goalkeepers. He expressed his disappointment but also highlighted the need to move on quickly and avoid compounding the error with another mistake. He also promised to deliver an outstanding performance for the Zambian people in South Africa, where their next game is scheduled.
Overall, the match was an exciting encounter, with Zambia demonstrating their dominance and resilience. Although Nsabata‘s error could have changed the outcome of the game, his teammates’ excellent performance ensured that the Chipolopolo secured a deserved victory.
