Speaking to ANGOP, in Luanda, about the preparation of the national team for the event, to be held as from 7 to 14 July in Barcelona in Spain, explained that of the total amount 40 million will be obtained through the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the other party (AKz 10 million) through sponsorship.

Another issue that also depends on meeting the requirements of the team's technical team who last month submitted a resignation proposal after winning the fourth place in the Montreux international tournament.

Fernando Falé (head coach), António Victor "Duke" (assistant coach), Mário Almeida (goalkeeper coach) and António Ferraz (coach) require payment of contracts, subsidies to athletes and guarantee of a training camp in Portugal.

Chipita dismisses the possibility of termination, arguing that it is a technical team whose contract began on the occasion of the World Championship, held in China in 2017, where Angola obtained the unprecedented fifth place.
