“Obviously, the mood is good. The guys are working hard in training, the excitement is there. We also have people who are experienced like Musa Nyatama, Happy Jele, Mpho Makola (and) Thabo (Matlaba), people that have been there. They try so much to keep us grounded for us to stay humble and listening to the coaches and make sure that we keep going and keep improving. Now we can see that it’s close but we also know that we need to focus on the next match,” Maela told the media.
