The South African tactician distinguishes the four players he fears facing the Msimbazi giants as they face off in a Group A match.

Ahead of the Group A game, the South African tactician mentioned winger Clatous Chama, Luis Miquissone, Larry Bwalya and Taddeo Lwanga as the four players he knows in the Simba squad and who need to be handled with care.
“Simba has good players, very good quality players but I know four in their team, Chama, Miquissone, Bwalya and Lwanya”, said Mosimane as quoted by Sokalabongo.
“I have been following Simba closely for a very long time and we know what we have to do to stop them, the four have to be contained, they are the lifeblood of the team, but one thing I know they won’t bother us in as such. , we have studied them well and are ready to manage them.
“We have no fear, we will come on the pitch ready to win the game, we believe strongly in ourselves and our main goal is one, win the game, we don’t need anything else.
In a separate interview Mosimane said they lost to Simba in their last meeting at the same venue, the loss will give them a reason to be cautious and cautious about the game.
“We don’t have to take the game for granted and we have to prepare thoroughly. We have to take a close look at the log and make sure we don’t wait until the last game to qualify for the second round, ”said Mosimane, as quoted by Daily News.
“Last season we had to wait until the last matches to qualify and we are now ready to turn the situation around. I don’t expect to make too many tactical changes in response to the weather conditions. If the changes happen, it will be because of the nature of the game.
“We believe we can win here and they also believe they can win too… it’s a football game so we believe we can win.”
