Chapungu shot stopper Talbert Shumba says he was disappointed when they were knocked out of the Chibuku Super Cup by FC Platinum on Wednesday.

The Air Force side lost 4-3 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in regulation time.

“I’m disappointed to come second best but that is part of football, there are three results possible; a draw, loss or win.

“We drew only to lose on penalties, it’s a lottery and you cannot practice luck, we lost on luck on Wednesday.

“We had our own chances and we were just unlucky in front of goal and that was our major undoing,” he said.

Shumba said they need to shift focus to the league when they face Herentals this Sunday at Ascot.

“We need to shift focus to the league now because it’s now a different battle altogether. We treat every game the same and we play to avoid losing.

“You have to know we are also fighting relegation so it’s not going to be an easy game because we know what Herentals are capable of doing and we urge our fans to come in their numbers and support local talent,” he said.
