Regardin the couple of tactical change she made at half time in the game against Chiefs he said, “It was a tactical change. We realised that they were penetrating in the midfield and if we did not bring in some fresh legs they were going to destroy us.
“I am very proud of the boys, I am very happy with boys, I am just disappointed for the people back home, but there is always tomorrow in life. We will do it next time.”
