The coach, however, was optimistic that his team could come up with a surprise emphasising that his team did not do so badly when they played both Ghana and Morocco.

“That will be the case with Ghana and Morocco. Gabon also has a good team. We have played all these teams in recent years. We managed to hold Morocco (2-2) and Ghana (0-0) in Moroni.

The Coelacanths boss did admit that this was a different challenge and they will have to put up their best performance to stand a chance against the opposition.

“This time it will be different, on neutral ground. We will have to be very serious and attentive against these very high level opponents.
We will try to do our best. And for us, it is a great pleasure to participate in this AFCON, for the first time.”

This will be the Island's first ever appearance at the Afcon having surprised many on the continent including Togo and Kenya who they finished above in qualification.
