Zambia coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has opted to pick positives from Chipolopolo’s 3-1 loss to Senegal on Sunday evening.
The Serbian mentor was addressing the press in Benin ahead of the second friendly against the Squirrels.
The game will take place at Mathieu Kerekou Friendship Stadium on Tuesday.
Speaking ahead of the match, Micho said: “We want to continue from where we stopped with the match in Senegal. We believe that we have not lost the match but learnt lessons and all the lessons we want to use in this match [against Benin].
“Whatever was wrong to correct and improve to tighten and iron our defence in order to become a perfect defence that cannot concede. We want to improve our discipline in the middle of the park and being more dangerous in the area of the opponents and creating and converting the chances.”
