Brockie On Mistakes Against Togo: We Can’t Put Ourselves In That Position Again

Mamelodi Sundowns will face AS Togo Sport in a CAF Champions League encounter this evening and Jeremy Brockie wants to avoid being in the same situation as last week.

The Brazilians suffered a 1-0 loss to Togo in the group stages of the CAF Champions League and will now be welcoming the same side to the Lucas Moripe Stadium this evening.

“When you play in these competitions, sometimes you have to move away from your normal style and adjust to what’s put in front of you,” Brockie said on Sundowns’ official website.

“We played on an astroturf, the bounce of the ball was a little bit different compared to grass and you have to go a little more direct to put pressure on the opposition to try and get them to make mistakes. For me, as an attacking player, it’s just about positioning yourself in the box and make sure that you take the opportunity when it comes. We had a lot of chances in the first half in Togo to put the game away and they got one chance and punished us and then they sat in and defended for the rest of the game. We can’t afford to put ourselves in that position again,” he added.
