“I’m happy because these young players showed determination and knew how to represent their country’s jersey. We had a tough game with a respectable opponent of African football.”
“We had already tuff a match with Ghana and we ended up tied, but we knew today we would have a tough battle. I was happy with the performance presented by my players.”
“We will continue to capitalize on this determination and confidence shown by the players for the next game,” he added.
