Angola to go all out for the win

After losing to Botswana in their opening match at the COSAFA Cup, Angola’s fate rests in this year’s competition on beating Mauritius in their second Group A game in Polokwane on Wednesday.

“We are aware that we must win the game. We will face an opponent who is high on confidence after their victory on match day one.

“But my players are only focused on the victory,” explained coach Srdjan Vasiljevic, under pressure after the defeat.

Mauritius upset Malawi in their group opener in one of two shocks on Monday and share the group lead with Botswana.

Vasiljevic said although participation in the tournament essentially serve to improve the technical and tactical dynamic of his squad, he also wanted positive results.
