Sissoko: For Mali's People

After knocking Bafana Bafana out of the Africa Cup of Nations in the quarter-finals, Mali were thought to have what it takes to make the final. However, they lost 4-1 to Nigeria on Wednesday in the semi-finals and will now look to contest for third prize with Ghana.

Tonight they play Ghana in the third place playoff at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and midfielder Mohamed Sissoko believes that they can make up for their semi-final loss. He told the Siya crew that the players have the country's pride at heart and want to give them a reason to celebrate.

“We have to make up for failing to reach the final. We were sure that we would reach the final and win the trophy, but now that we are here we have to win this one. It is not just for us but for our people in Mali. 

“We played Ghana in the same group at the same stadium and we know what they are capable of doing. We lost the group game but that doesn't mean we will lose tonight. We just have to play our game and score goals to win," the Paris Saint Germain midfielder said.
