Burundi coach over the moon

Burundi's Egyptian coach Lofty Naseem was over the moon after his team sailed past Harambee Stars in a Chan qualifier on Sunday.

Lofty rebuked Stars saying that over confidence cost them the match and added that he was going to embark immediately to prepare against Sudan who are their next opponents.

"I want to thank my players for holding on despite being reduced to 10 players. The problem with Harambee Stars is that they were so overconfident and thought they had won the match before even getting to the stadium."

"My players showed great character despite playing on a poor pitch and I believe we will go far in this tournament as we embark on intensive preparations," Lofty told supersport.com.

Burundi will clash with Sudan in their next match as they hope to qualify for the CHAN to be hosted in 2014 by South Africa.
