Luanda — The coach of the 1º de Agosto's cadet men team, Joaquim Pinto, called on Tuesday in Luanda for carefulness of the Angolan national senior males football team, so as to win the first match against Morocco in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON2013), set for South Africa from 19 January to 10 February.

He said that team coached by Gustavo Ferrin must be concentrated during the first round match so as to control and stop Moroccans to create dangerous situations, seeking victory that may encourage the national squad for the next game against South Africa.

According to him, Angola is preparing well for the competition, though they are in a tough group but he appealed the squad to continue working hard so as to achieve the objective of qualifying for the next phase.

Angola shares group A together with South Africa, Cape Verde and Morocco.
