Eritrea coach delighted with display



Eritrea coach Telkit Negash has dared to dream after his team held favourites Zanzibar to a barren draw in Kampala on Monday.

Negash praised his players for resilience and hard work the game saying that they were only unlucky not to score and added that he was grooming the team for future top competitions like the African Cup of Nations.

"I want to thank my players for the hard work they showed in the pitch and the fighting spirit in the entire game. Zanzibar is a strong team but we looked better than them and missed several chances that could have given us the in. My players have self belief and a see this as an opportunity to showcase their talents."

"I don’t think I will change my game plan in the other matches but looking at the group we are going to play very strong teams but I still believe nothing is impossible as long as the will and the efforts are in place," Negash told supersport.com.

"I envisage a great future for this team and our dreams and aspirations is to prepare a team that could possibly make it to the Afcon in three years time to the surprise of all pundits who have always said we are the underdogs," he added.

Eritrea have to play both Malawi and Rwanda to determine if they will qualify for the quarterfinals.
