“I am telling them that we are only in the last-8, that we still have some way to go, and that the farther we go, the tougher the opposition becomes.

“We have played four matches and won three, so we must keep level heads as we go forward.

“Our philosophy is that there are no small teams here at the Africa Cup.

“Every team qualified to be here, and every team in the knockout phase qualified from a group phase.

“Any team in the last-8 is good enough for the trophy.

“We believe we are good enough for the trophy, but we must continue working and putting out our best on match days.”
