“It (the first leg) was a good game even though it had its challenges. We saw our mistakes and are working on them so we should be a different team in the coming tie. They scored here and I believe we can score away from home too. From what I have seen in training and the motivation coming from my fellow players, I am 100% sure that we will turn the game in our favor,” he added.
Tusker who eliminated Djibouti’s Arta Solar 7 in the first round of the competition will hope that they make it to the money stage of the competition with a loss set to drop them into the last qualifying round of the CAF Confederations Cup.
