“Football is a game of uncertainties. There’s always an element of surprise and that’s what happened in the group stage against the Gambians.
“But we always have time to make amendments so meeting them again, what will in change our team is the character and attitude. You can expect that we will amend what we did wrong in the game we lost.”
“Africa football is changing. Previously you can easily say Ghana will beat Gambia but now their standard has improved.
“And there is always an element of surprise but now we are coming into this match like wounded tigers to secure a win”, he said at the Pre- match press conference held on Sunday.
