We were outclassed by North Korea- Black Princesses coach Bashir Hayford

Published on: 09 August 2014

Black Princesses coach Bashir Hayford admits his side were second best against Korea DPR in their 3-0 reverse on Friday at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup.

North Korea’s No10 Ri Un-Sim scored twice to cap a fine performance and a late penalty from Jo Son-Yon condemned Ghana in Toronto.

Ghana could not build on their opening 1-0 win over hosts Canada must now beat Finland on Tuesday by more goals to advance to the knockout round.

Hayford admits his ladies performance was below par.

‘’It was a tough game and we lost to the better side. We were dominated the whole match. When you face a good team, you just have to face up to it,” a disappointed Hayford said.

“Winning a game, it’s capitalising on opponent’s mistakes, and we made more mistakes than them. Now we have to accept the result, quickly put it aside and raise our morale.”

    10 FACT ABOUT ZAMBIANS 1. All male kids do not circumsize and that makes them "koti boto" in our Ghanaian language. 2. They eat some food popularly known as "shima" and they eat it with cassava leaves. In Ghana they will known as "aponkye" 3. They drink so much so that, a lot of Zambians here in the USA have had their driving liscense suspended, revoked and have done some jail terms. "We call them "sagy3 am" 4. Most of the men have bad body odour and I guess is because of the penis not been circumsized. 5 They like marrying young women for wives, for example, you will see a 56yr old man with a 22 yr old wife. You can guess what these young ladies do behind these old drunkards with other men especially guys from west Africa. 6. Zambian men eat with two hands like baboons and have no table manners when they have their food. They can disgrace you very quick as an African. 7 They eat salt and sugar like there is no tomorrow. Every food they eat must either be sprinkled with salt or sugar. It is because Zambia is a landlocked country with no shores or coastal harbors. Salt and sugar is their white gold. 8.Most Zambian women would prefer to date a guy or marry a man from west Africa because they call them "trophy" when they get one. It means the west African men are more smart, educated and very civilized and we treat them better than their own. 9. "Shimanga" is a name for a girl and " mulumbi and lingashi " are names for boys. These are just examples. Very shinny names. 10. South Africa is "Zambian's America" they struggle to go to South Africa just like the west struggle to go to America. However, the South Africans even hate them so bad and more often, Zambians will tell you they are from "South Africa" . They are shy to say they are Zambians. Next week will about about our brother next door...

    They are not bad but they simply are not good with corners and free kicks. If they could have taken advantage of some of those they would have been okay. The game was actually closer than the final score demonstrates.
