Taoussi says Morocco are ready
Morocco coach Rachid Taoussi says his Morocco team is well prepared to face South Africa in their final Group A match on Sunday night.
Morocco have drawn against Angola and Cape Verde and need to go for the win against the host nation if they are to go through to the knockout stages of Afcon 2013.
“We have prepared for this game. We know how important it is. We are prepared physically, technically and especially physcologically,” Taoussi told a tense Moroccan media contingent on Saturday.
“When we did our analysis in the last game we found there is a leak in our team that we need to fix. After we left the last game, we began talking during the dinner time that we must all blame ourselves to find the leak.
“We will try to avoid this in the next game. Everyone must have the feeling that we can still qualify when we go into the next game with South Africa. We have prepared ourselves in a good way to play the South Africans.”
The coach was asked what the message has been from the coaching department to the players ahead of the game against Bafana Bafana at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday night.
“I feel that all the players are serious about this. They are looking serious at training and I hope it will be a better showing in our final group game. I slept well and have a god feeling that we can do it.”
