The Portuguese based starlet says he and his teammates are now more resolute in ensuring a positive victory against their Malian counter-parts in must win encounter.

“We were disappointed by the outcome and our showing on the day; the nation was equally disenchanted because this is not the Amajita they know. We were not mobile, were easily bullied off the ball and our body language was poor,” admitted Leepile.

“The good thing is that the defeat happened on the opening match whereby we still have six massive points to play for. We can’t afford to disappoint our legion of supporters again.”

“Against Mali, we need to be aggressive, disciplined and go for the kill early in the game. That has been the trend in these games. Matches are normally decided in the opening 45 minutes,” added the crafty midfielder.

He concluded by confessing that everyone in the squad is determined to qualify and compete in the U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

“We all want to go to New Zealand. It is good for the country, good for our families and above all good for our careers. We have spoken about this among ourselves, the technical team and we all have fire within ourselves. We can’t afford to let our guard down, not at all,” concluded the Tourizense FC linkman
