DR Congo goalkeeper Anthony Mossi Ngawi has blamed his coach’s tactics for his team loss against Uganda Cranes.
Uganda stunned DRC 2-0 with Patrick Kaddu and Emmanuel Okwi both heading in to give DRC a rude welcome in Egypt.
DRC failed to put up a strong performance despite having a good squad that has West Ham’s Arthur Masuaku, Beijing Guoan’s Cedric Bakambu and Anderlecht’s Yannick Bolasie.
It should be noted that Mossi started on bench ahead of Ley Matampi in the posts.
“It is true that we have a very physical team but the organization was poor today. I don’t want to use big words. We have good and intelligent players; it was just a bad day. But in three days, I believe we will produce a better performance,” said Mossi as quoted by Goal.
“It’s difficult to explain what happened today because we had enough time to acclimatize and we trained very well. We can say it’s a flop and it happened in a bad time because if we had won today it would have brightened our chances at the competition.”
Mossi plays his club football in Switzerland. Despite being born in France, the shot stopper chose to play for DR Congo.
DR Congo will seek for resuscitation when they take on hosts Egypt on Wednesday, June 26 before facing Zimbabwe four days later.
“It was not a good day and a good match for us. We have to quickly put this loss behind us because there are other games ahead,” Mossi added.
“We have to concentrate because in three days we will be facing Egypt. We can’t afford to reproduce our performance of today (Saturday) because we played very badly.”
