Kaziba’s Take On The Game

“We did recovery training yesterday and today we did game-tailored training drills. All my players I am going to use tomorrow are in good shape both mentally and physically.

“Tomorrow’s opponents are not a team to undermine because of their position on the table but rather a group to take caution of because of their style of play. My technical team and I are well aware of the threat Bright Stars pose and for that case, we have done our homework well.

“We will push for early goals tomorrow and in the same spirit defend them very well in order to come out with the win. It is not good being on the edge for the whole 90 minutes.

“We want to win and end the first round with 25 points.”
