last friendly match against Gambia tomorrow. The coach cited the previous matches against Sierra Leone and Morocco has given the team the confidence it needed to face any other team in Africa.
“Gambia is better than us according to FIFA World Ranking, they are ranked 149 and
we’re at 165, but we’re going to fight them and we are targeting nothing but a win, and that win will greatly help us,” Coach Simon expressed. The coach also urged the fans to be more patient, as the team is in its early
stages of development and their full support was needed. “In order to build a strong and firm team in Africa, it takes patience and effort. So, I request fans to continue supporting us in this. It’s not about winning
every time, that is not the goal at the moment,” he urges. Coach Simon also expressed his confidence in the newly appointed head coach, Stefani Cusin, believing that the team was headed in the right direction.
