Luanda — The captain of Angolan national football team, Manucho Gonçalves, said Sunday in Luanda that the 1-1 draw with Uganda was due to lack of tranquillity within the players.

Speaking to journalists at "11 de Novembro" Stadium, the new captain of the national squad stressed that the team could have left the game victorious, instead drawing with Uganda, which was due to lack of concentration.

The Angolan striker also praised the behaviour of fans at the stadium and urged them to continue supporting the team and respect decisions of the federation as well as the technical team.
