“We believe that we have dominated in all the aspects of the game, except one crucial aspect and that is to put the ball in the net. In that regard I will just say that we applied ourselves very well,” said the coach, as quoted on Bucs’ social media platforms.

The Serbian mentor added that Bucs’ chances of advancing to the next round of the competition are realistic as the team will be working on beating the Zambian side at home next week.
