Luanda — The former Angolan international player Albino António Carnaval has advised in Luanda the National Football Team to be imbued with determination and improve attack moves, with a view to overcoming Burkina Faso next Sunday, a second-leg encounter qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) to happen in Cameroon.
The game, set for Luanda's 11 de Novembro Stadium, the former goal-keeper of Mambroa team and of the national squad, has said to ANGOP that the country's squad must show determination during the game and always try to make quick ball transitions and put pressure on the opponents defence in their goal area, since such attitude can bring about positive results more easily.
"I Know it'll not be an easy game. In the last five years the adversary has evolved and comes to defend the advantage (3-1 in the first leg). Our squad must be able to position themselves properly in the field and explore the flanks to dodge the tall defenders of the opponent", emphasised the source, further stressing that the Angolan team will have to brush up the attack moves.
The Angolan squad is being coached by the Serb Srdan Vasiljevic.
He also appealed to the squad's defence sector to watch out for surprise and fast incursions of the opponents.
Next Sunday's match is part of the fifth round of Group I, in which Angola stand in the third position with six points, while Burkina Faso have seven in the second place.
Mauritania lead Group I with nine points, whereas Botswana come in the last position with one point.
