“The coach knows and if you remember after the first game, I said that we made a dream and a dream final for me was to play Egypt. 

“When we played a practice match we collected a lot of information and from then on I told coach, I believe that your team is capable of winning, or maybe my team, hence we came with, maybe the dream final is Egypt vs South Africa, so today is through to the final. I hope they give the same spirit in the final,” he said.
