“It was a very tough game we knew it, the way Liberia plays it’s power play, not combination. I think we put the right players on the right place,” he told SABC Sport after the game.
“And I’m very proud the way they did it. They fought for it, I saw 90 minutes perseverance, I mean we scored two times. I think it was difficult but I think we deserve it.
“We knew, like I said it’s power play how they play, from behind, the long ball and then they fight for it and I needed the guys who fight also,” he said.
“And I think with Maela behind, with Sithole in midfield, Mayambela is a big guy with power, I think (thought) we could do something and we did it.”
