The Warriors surrendered an early lead to lose 1-2 to the Amabinneplaas and exit the competition, but the coach has put the blame on their inability to hit the back of the net after dominating the better of the game.

 

“We missed two clear chances and hell broke loose. South Africa fought on and capitalised on our mistakes to score. I cannot see anything that made us lose this game apart from missing those chances.” said Ndlovu.

 

Considering that the competition is over, Ndlovu said he is looking forward to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mali in Bamako next month.

 

“It is over. We gave our best shot. We will go back to the drawing board for the Africa Cup of Nations clash against Mali,” he said.

 

The Zimbabwe coach added that experience in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) will be vital to his team dominated by members of the Olympic team in subsequent competitions.

 

He said, “Most of these players play for the U-23 team, so it was a build up for the next national team of Zimbabwe. Hopefully, we will go back home and continue in the qualifiers of the All Africa and Olympic Games.”

 

South Africa lead the pack on nine points, Niger on six points, Zimbabwe on three points with Ghana at the bottom with no point.

 

South Africa will face Algeria while Niger battles hosts Sudan at the last eight.

 

Zimbabwe also failed to go past the group stage at the maiden edition of the tournament held in 2009 in Cote d’Ivoire.
