Speaking to the press, after the challenge at the Suez stadium, the coach said it was a "tough and very demanding" match, which forced a redoubled effort on the part of the group, which had a preparation with many difficulties and a meritorious result.

"We faced a great opponent, who imposed a difficult game on us. We play with the best team in Africa and we can congratulate the attitude and determination of our players, who knew how to fulfill their mission in the field, "he said.

He added that in addition to having as a mission the launch of new players, the national team intends to present good football, which allows it to compete with the best teams on the continent.

Asked about the fitness of Gerson Dala, who only entered the second half, he argued that the athlete needs to assert himself as being "a great time" for such.

Identical position was also expressed by captain Mateus Galiano, who thinks it is important to score at the beginning of the competition, even if it is with a tie, as a form of motivation of the group.

In the same series of Angola and Tunisia in the CAN2019 are also Mali and Mauritania.

The next meeting of Angola will be on the 29th before Mauritania.

Tunisia plays with Mali on day 28.
