Speaking to the press at the end of the match at Cidadela pavilion, the coach stressed that from the outset the group showed superiority in a clash that the opponent created difficulties, but the result of the concentration managed the goal that dictated the qualification before the end.

He explained that the squad did everything to open the scoring sheet earlier, when it scored in the middle field, but the athletes accused anxiety and this made the match more pressing for the Angolan team.
