” Our team has no alternative but victory in this match against an unwieldy opponent, who can settle for a draw to pass.he told APS.
To be able to qualify for the quarter-finals of CHAN 2022, the Mourabitounes must give their all and bring out the big game, underlined this seasoned 36-year-old player, who expects a very competitive meeting against the Malian Eagles.
“We have a few days to recover and focus on this last group game and approach it with determination as a final”he said.
To qualify, Mauritania will have to win against Mali, after having drawn zero everywhere against Angola. A decisive match for the Mauritanians who will not be allowed to make mistakes.
In this group D, Angola, which occupies first place in the standings with 2 points, ahead of Mali and Mauritania (one point each), is not yet eliminated except in the event of a victory for the Mauritanians or a positive draw (with goals) from Mali.
