'We need to stick to game plan'



Zambia winger Jonas Sakuwaha says Chipolopolo’s Group Cup final game against Burkina Faso at Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday will be tough, but a must-win.

Sakuwaha had an outstanding performance as a second half substitute after replacing Isaac Chansa in the 73rd minute of Zambia’s penultimate Group C match against Nigeria on January 25 at Mbombela Stadium that ended 1-1.

"It is going to be a tough match," Sakuwaha said.

"It (Burkina Faso) is not a team to underrate as you can see they are high on morale after beating Ethiopia 4-0."

Burkina Faso humbled Ethiopia by four unanswered goals with just 10 men following the second half dismissal of goalkeeper Sanou Germain on January 25 to shoot to the top of Group C.

Sakuwaha however believes Zambia will certainly secure their quarterfinal passage on Tuesday against the Group C leaders.

"I think for us we have to stick to our game plan and just be strong in the match and be positive and play as a team," the 29-year-old TP Mazembe player said.

Burkina Faso lead Group C on four points - two points more than Zambia who are tied for second and third with Nigeria.

Ethiopia are bottom of Group C on one point and they face Nigeria in a simultaneous kick-off in Rustenburg.

Zambia must beat Burkina Faso to secure a February 3 quarterfinal slot.
