Lesotho will take on Malawi in their second and final game on Saturday and Nkhasi is expecting a different ball game compared to what they experienced against Zambia.
The Mehalalitoe coach said his team is still a work in progress and the experience gained playing at the tournament will help them improve.
“We took a lot of positives from that game against Zambia despite it being a heavy defeat to us. I mean, we had to lift the players up going into the next game against Malawi,” Nkhasi told journalists.
“Obviously, Zambia is a big team and we cannot really compare ourselves against them, but we tried to compete especially in the first half, but I think in the second half we lost our structure.
“Against Malawi, we are expecting an open game. I think they are very good on the break; we have studied them and hopefully my players will come to the party. Maybe they are not as strong as Zambia,” he said.
Nkhasi noted that they will use the COSAFA Championship as a learning curve to improve following a long layoff due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
