Niger Tornadoes goalkeeper Mustapha Aliko has urged his colleagues to show more attitude which he claims was missing in the 1-2 home loss to Guinea’s Santoba in Saturday’s CAF Confederation cup qualifying round defeat.
Aliko speaking in a chat with brila.net said the Conakry side weren’t any special but showed more attitude against Tornadoes where his colleagues struggled to show conviction of a team ready to play continental football.
He added that they will have to work better on this to overturn the huge deficit before them ahead of the away fixture.
“We are not happy, everybody is sad after the loss but we thank God we have some good coaches and management to help us through this to talk to the players and psyche them up that it is not finished yet.
The way we saw the boys we were thinking that they were not good but they showed they were better than us in the first leg. But we can also turn things around.”
