“It’s a big challenge to win here tomorrow, because they didn’t lose a match since eight years, so we want to do that.
“We know that a draw we have the ticket for the AFCON. This is our first target and then later we speak about the second match. Everybody is fit, no injuries and I hope we can do what we want to do.”
