Angola: Coach Blames Lack of Composure for 1º De Agosto Woes

Luanda — Coach Romeu Filomeno blamed 1º de Agosto 1-0 defeat to Eswatini's Mbabane Swallows (former Swaziland) on a lack of serenity, in their second round match group D of African League Champions Clubs in football.

He said that lack of capacity to end in quick offensive transitional way that would ensure the team's win has contributed to the Tuesday woes.

Speaking to Angop, he stressed that despite the negative result nothing has been lost, as there are still 12 points ahead.

Former coach of 1º de Agosto, Filemon regretted that the team would start the competition in the best way.

According to him, in order to keep balance in terms of the points, the team would have secured three points at home and a draw in Tuesday match.

This was Angola's team first defeat, after the local 1-1 draw in debut match against Etoile of Tunisia.

Mbabane are the leader with four points after a draw in the opening round at Zesco's home base in Zambia.

In the other game of this round, Etoile Sahel of Tunisia host Wednesday Zesco United of Zambia.
