Bwalya, who is also the Football Association of Zambia' (FAZ) president went into the dressing room at half time with words of encouragement to the players and they came back a changed side in the second half of their goalless draw with Swaziland.
Interviewed by KickOff.com after the game, the former Zambia national team coach said he was disappointed and angry at the players, who had failed to utilise the scoring chances that were created.
“If we were serious, we could have won this game. It is unfortunate that we have only one point from two games played so far.”
He said, however, that with two games before they wrap up the group matches, he believed that the Chipolopolo Boys could still do well.
“We have two games to play in Zambia and if we can win both games then we will be on top of our group. That is what every Zambia wants at this point in time,” he added.
Zambia is in Group 11with Swaziland and Togo after Eritrea withdrew from the competition.
Swaziland lead the group with four points followed by Togo on three points while Zambia has one.
Swaziland travel to Zambia this weekend for the return match in Chililabombwe.
