Mikia Kalati MASERU — Sudan national team coach Mohamed Abdall has vowed to pile more misery on Lesotho when the two nations clash in a World Cup tie at Setsoto Stadium this afternoon.
Likuena go into the match still smarting from last Friday’s 7-0 hammering at the hands of Ghana in Kumasi.
The Falcons of Jediane, as the Sudanese national team is affectionately known, arrived in the country on Friday in high spirits following a 2-0 win over African champions Zambia last Friday.
“We know it won’t be easy against Lesotho, but we are prepared to fight and continue where we left off in the opening match,” said Abdall.
He said they won’t let the famous win over Chipolopolo get to their heads. “Lesotho must expect a tough game,” Abdall said.
“Our dream is to qualify for the World Cup after playing at the African Nations Cup earlier this year,” Abdall said. “We want to build on that success and be counted among the best teams on the continent.”
Abdall continued: “Competition is very high for the top spot, everyone predicted Zambia to beat us last weekend, but in the end we won the match.”
“I have a very good, hard working group of players hungry for success and they will show that against Lesotho on Sunday,” said Abdall.
The Sudan coach said his team won’t underestimate the under pressure Lesotho side after their 7-0 loss to Ghana.
“They will come to us like a wounded tiger, we have to be very careful in our approach against them on Sunday,” said Abdall.
Ghana play Zambia in the other Group D match at the newly built Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Zambia’s northern city of Ndola.
