Former Zimbabwean international Tinashe ‘Father’ Nengomasha lashed out at Callisto Pasuwa’s tactics after the Warriors were handed a 4-1 defeat by Tunisia to crash out of AFCON 2017.
Nengomasha is part of the Supersport’s panel of analysts for AFCON 2017 and did not hold back in his assessment of the Warriors performance.
Speaking after the game Nengomasha said, ‘I don’t know what he was thinking or doing. I can’t understand his tactics and formation. For example playing two defensive minded midfielders in such a game.
Maybe this can be a learning curve to improve if ZIFA decide to keep him.
‘I have always thought Ndoro is a good a finisher and should be starting I do not get why he was not being used. You saw when he came in what difference he made and that goal he scored.
Nengomasha was not amused either by Pasuwa questioning the officiating.
‘I think Pasuwa cannot be blaming officials , he needs to just apologise to the nation and tell them we failed to get to the promised land and we need to move on. Except for maybe the penalty there was no poor officiating added Nengomasha.
‘When you are a coach you need to learn to study your opponents and improve your game , I did not see improvement we were making the same mistakes from previous game.
Nengomasha analysis was backed by Shaun Bartlett and Samuel Kuffor who felt Pasuwa tactics were wrong and seemed baffled by some of his decisions.
