“The biggest motivation is going to prepare for Guinea game from tomorrow. No player has given his 100 per cent. We need to improve a lot. There is no space for relaxation or complacency. We had a balanced game today. Today’s match is a history which we need to work on. We shall stretch ourselves to come up with a better display. How far we can go in the tournament, only God knows.”

“All our focus now is to refocus our mind, adapt, and acclimatise ahead of our next game against Guinea. Looking forward to our next game, no opponent is beatable. We need to work hard by showing our mental strength and convert our chances. We need to recover ahead of the game. I am not happy with the way we handle the ball today which we must improve on.”
