“Sides like Nigeria had a strong start. They beat Burundi convincingly without conceding a single goal. We play them tomorrow and I believe that we need to be switched on mentally if we are to come out with a positive result at the end of fulltime.

“It is going to be a tactical match because both sides have got a good technical staff with players who are also good on the ball. A team that makes more mistakes is this encounter is the one that is going to lose in this upcoming matchup. We just need to make sure we minimize the possibility of such occurring on our side, and we will be just fine.”
