Burkina coach mocks Zambia flops, shows Ghana how to deafeat Chipolopolo

Burkina Faso coach Paul Put has mockingly revealed how he managed to push title holders Zambia out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage.

His revelation has shown Ghana how to defeat Zambia in their World Cup qualifier later this year after two unsuccessful attempts to defeat the Chipolopolo last year.

The defending champions were embarrassingly eliminated after a 0-0 draw against Burkina Faso in their final Group C game on Tuesday.

It is the first time the reigning champions have gone out in the group stage since Algeria in 1990, when there were four groups of three little-fancied teams.

Zambia deserved no more than they got as they failed to produce anything like the form that took them to the title last year after three draws.

The stalemate with Zambia owed much to a dogged performance from Burkina Faso as they chose to flood the midfield and slow play down.

Stallions coach Paul Put acknowledged the tactics he used to frustrate the Zambians after the game in colloquial fashion.

“The ingredient for the day was more pepper than salt for the soup,” he said.

Zambia beat Ghana 1-0 twice last year which has kept the Black Stars chasing for a revenge against the Chipolopolo and the tip from Put will surely help the West African edge past Zambia.

Ghana will face Zambia in their World Cup qualifier likely to be played in Kumasi later this year.

    O! Zambia, ur luck has run out. Now u undestand u are not one of the mighty football nations in Africa after all. U r just a small country in football. Better luck next time…

  2. oxygen says:

    PLEASE,THE BURKINABES NEEDED A DRAW OR A WIN TO PROGRESS.THEY CAME DEFENDING AND COUNTER ATTACKING AND HAD THEIR DRAW TO QUALIFY.
    WHAT GHANA NEEDS IS A WIN IN ALLL THE REMAINING MATCHES TO QUALIFY FOR THE WC2014,THEREFORE YOUR PANECEA WOULD NOT BE IDEAL IN THE SITUATION GHANA FIND’S ITSELF.

    There is nothing special about Zambia,we only lost of them out of fear,’cos they were champions,oh the defending champions are coming,what are we going to do? out fear that why lost to them.From the way they are playing I doubt they will beat both Botswana and Sudan,the world qualification will come down the depth in squad and the quality of players, this is where Ghana have an advantage over the rest of the group,we should never have lost to them in Zambia.

      Luck also played a role and the REF Med Said Kordi was corrupt. He no longer does matches for CAF for a reason!! When you have a ref like that anything can happen!!

  4. sade says:

    @Viper but u lost anyway.well like they say every dog has got its day.u jst hope and pray to the devil that Ghana lifts this cup otherwise zambians will be loose on this site

  5. Muyatwa says:

    Its not easy for any team to defend a major title in less than a year after winning it. The team needed time to rejuvinate. CAF was in a hurry to see that the cup is not in the hands of Zambia but in Francophone hands. The ref was suspect in the first half of yesterday’s game and also the reprimand of the egyptian ref. We saw the worst of officiating at this tounament but no such harsh decisions. Wish them CAF all the best and long live Zambia.

  6. PIG says:

    Congrats Ghana for progressing, as for Zambia, tough lucky, but wait a minute, there is another competition in 2015. As all sports lovers, we wont cry so much for this loss, it had to come. Even Egypt that seemed to be invincible has now failed to qualify for two tournaments.

    Ghana, this may just be your year, though I pity you, Ivory Coast and 6 other countries are still fancying their chances, 31 years is certainly too long for your soccer loving country(dont know how many of you bloggers remember the feeling of being champions of Africa), us here in Zambia, even 3 year olds are still singing the victory songs. Good lucky

  7. zambia is our toilet hole says:

    MAN,I PERSONALLY DON’T GIVE NO SHIT TO ZAMBIA FOOTBALL.THEY CAN LOOSE TILL THE END OF THIS WORLD.FOOLISH ZAMBIANS.TWAT.

  8. Chu says:

    See, before we can be in momentum for that last hyped game, let us think of how to beat Sudan home and away and also lesotho. They are no done deals. Then after they have been done, we show the players the video of how Mayuka made a toy of our defence to ginger the revenge spirit. However, I doubt if Renard would Still be at post by then. That game is no extraordinary game. Let just play it as one of those

  9. Headman Uzo -Chief Tembwe says:

    There is rumour going round in Zambia that they have qualified after BUrkina Faso was disquilified for featuring a Red carded player.
    How tru is this story, Please confirm

  10. Alomo says:

    zambia players lack creativity-neither their coach nor players could crack up a winning strategy against 10 men Ethiopia- the lowest ranked team in the tournament. A team featuring in the tournament for first time in thirty years.

    zambia IS PATHETIC and WHACK-
    zambia would never achieve a quarter of what Ghana has.

    DON’T BRAGG ABOUT A MEDIOCRE, SHALLOW AND BELOW AVERAGE PLAYERS FROM zambia.

  11. Alomo says:

    It is now evident that zambia’s CAF championship would be the shortest in CAF history. It was a blip that they won in 2012.

    Glad that this whack team would not represent Africa in the Confederations Cup this year. They would’ve disgraced and misrepresented the continent with their ‘boot leg’ and lack of creativity.

    They would’ve erased what true CAF champions have done.

  12. Zambia Soccerman says:

    @Headman Uzo-Chief Tembwe. Thats one stupid rumour that has no substance to it. We Suck period. We have a bad mentality to the sport period. Ghana and Ivory Coast say they ” We can not lose or Draw with small boys” We are powerhouse and when they play with the small boys, they show them their place, We Zambians, we open our mouths and say this and that..and say say how we are. and when we play teams that we should not lose to ie Tanzania, Uganda and lose, we say they are no such things as small boys in african soccer. Zambia has bad attitude and Ghana will demolish us in Kumasi wait and see. We should be thankful for the cup in 2012, but we are no where near to being that great soccer nation we want to be. WE SUCK BIG TIME and truth hurts,but thats the fact. We can’t score and as a matter of fact let Ghana qualify for the world cup to save ourselves from emabarrasement.

  13. Zambia Soccerman says:

    I now think we should as Ghanains fire the coach and spare mediocracy

  14. Zambia Soccerman says:

    @Aloma, it is human nature to be happy when you win something, what we Zambians have refused is insults from you Ghana people..atleast not all, but the ignorant ones. Coomon sense tells me that everyone would be happy to win Africa Cup including you Ghana people. We are not better that you interms of quality of players, but you guys started insulting us because you lost to us, calling us all sorts of names. I personally understand your anger, but the truth is Zambia will back again. Good luck to you in the rest of the finals.

    • Al says:

      thats a lie…i rememberit like it was yesterday..right after you guys beat CIV you flooded every single one of our sites and started bragging non-stop and then when you beat us again b.c our then rookie coach wanted to field 4 defensive midfielders in a 4-4-2 set up you guys just got straight up cocky…I think i speak for most Ghanaians when i say we were actually rooting for yall until you guys started gloating

  15. Zambia Soccerman says:

    @Alomo, Its in the books that we won in 2012, you and I will not change that. Whether it was luck or fluke, so be it. We will take that. No other team had that luck in 2012 but Zambia. Maybe this year you will need that luck also.The only person that is a disgrace is youself, Zambia has not disgraced anybody. We are proud of what we have and if you don’t like it then go hang yourself on a banana left. Oh by the way on your way out don’t make the door hit butt. Thanks

  16. CAF PRESIDENT says:

    burkina faso used a goal keeper who was red carded.we are criticaly looking into it and withn 24hrs wil make a ruling .this might cost burkina faso and zambia wil be given 3points and 3goal.consequently zambia will top group c and take on togo/tunisia

    • PIG says:

      Nonsense, we are not interested in that trash. Zambia was not ready for this tournament. They wanted to continue celebrating. I guess they will be able to regroup and offer credible challenge for a world cup place.

  17. The Daddy says:

    These Ghanians are full of hate for Zambians,i wonder why??? please be reminded that even if we had an early exit, no team at the Afcon beat us..YOU guys are busy talking about the quality of Ghanian players, what quality is there to even boast about?The fact is you guys are afraid of us and we are not afraid of you,talk as much as you want but the game is played on the pitch not in the mouth..by the way almost everybody in zambia touched that trophy,we know how it feels and im talking about the current generation unlike you guys who only hear stories about the trophy from your ancestors..lol.

  18. GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

  20. Chipolopolo says:

    Zambia went out with pride coz they didnt lose any game, evenn big teams like Italy ve gone out in the first round, so what?

    If Zambia was lucky to win AFCOn, then be lucky as well, why cant u be lucky?

  21. Chipolopolo says:

    Did Burkina Faso defeat Zambia? they put 11 players in the box and u call that a formula? Hope Ghana has listened to that formula
