RADIO: COSAFA Cup, CAF Final Bring Plenty Of Excitement

The COSAFA Cup reaches the semifinal stage on Friday with South Africa to tackle Mozambique and Senegal up against Eswatini for a place in Sunday’s decider. It has been a hectic road for the teams to get to this point, but they now stand 180 minutes away from glory.

In this episode of The COSAFA Show, we hear from the South Africa stand-in coach Morena Ramoreboli, Horacio Goncalves from Mozambique and Eswatini tactician Dominic Kunene ahead of the Last 4 clashes. But while some teams celebrate, for others there was bitter disappointment, not least defending champions Zambia and six-times winners Zimbabwe. We will hear from Chipolopolo coach Micho Sredojevic about his team’s surprise early exit, and what that may mean for the future, and also from Zimbabwe tactician Zdravko Logarušić, who admits he “expected better” from his team.

Saturday will also see the final of the CAF Champions League played as Kaizer Chiefs take on giants Al Ahly in Casablanca. Chiefs forward Khama Billiat could come up against his former coach Pitso Mosimane, who he won the Champions League with in 2016 while in the colours of Mamelodi Sundowns.

“We have to be perfect in the final and make sure we stick to the plan the coach [Stuart Baxter] is showing us in training,” Billiat says.

“We believe it will give us the right result. But at the same time we need to not forgot what the coach is saying, that it will not be easy, we are facing a good side, we can only give it away if we don’t apply certain things that can make a difference in a game. Which is being in the right place and managing the space [they give to Ahly]. We know we are just 90 minutes away from the glory.”
