Africa Soccer AFL: Mamelodi Sundowns will go all out against Wydad – Mokwena

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena has promised an all-out attacking game when they take on Wydad Casablanca in Sunday’s African Football League (AFL) final second leg.

The South African side trail 2-1 from last weekend’s first leg and need to overturn the deficit at home to clinch the inaugural AFL crown. But Mokwena remains confident of emerging victorious by adopting an aggressive gameplan at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.

“We will do everything we can to be champions at the end of the day,” he told reporters after the narrow first-leg loss in Morocco,” said Mokwena as quoted by CAFOnline, adding: “It is not over. We still have the second leg and will throw everything at Wydad.”

Mokwena is happy they snatched an away goal courtesy of a penalty converted by Abdelmonem Boutouils from the first leg at Stade Mohammed V. “We showed very good character and fought hard against a very good opponent in an intense atmosphere,” he said, adding: “We have to prepare to recover and get players rested before we throw everything at Wydad. It is not over and we will do everything to be champions.”
