SIXTH CLEAN SHEET DELIGHTS NAKENA
Sensational Zanaco FC defender Jimmy Nakena was full of praise for his side following a sixth clean sheet in all competitions after a 1-0 win over Forest Rangers on Sunday afternoon at Sunset Stadium.
Nakena told Zanacofc.co.zm that the team is still not at their best, but what is important is that they are able to get results and keep more clean sheets as compared to the previous season.
“As defenders, it always feels nice to play games without conceding goals.” Says Nakena
Reflecting on the 2019 Transitional Season, Nakena said that his team has greatly improved at the back.
“We’re now defending very well as compared to last season because of good communication in defense.
What is important in defense is communication, as long as there’s communication at the back then all will be ok.”
“We’ve given our strikers a task to score and we’ll defend the goals,” Nakena added.
Zanaco leaves for Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday afternoon for the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup Play-Off against Cano Sport Academy.
