What they said

Player of the match Janet Egyir – Hasaacas Ladies Team Captain

“It feels great to win the woman of the match award. We feel great, this is a dream coming true for us.

“We are looking forward to the final game, whoever they are, we are ready for them”.

Yussif Basigi – Hasaacas Ladies Coach

“I said last time that the game was not going to be easy. The tempo of the teams qualifying for this is very high. Yes we missed the penalty, but having the penalty in the first place meant we were attacking and going to win”.

“There were tactical variations in the second half. We are going to train the girls on finishing as this is a key element for us”.

“The girls have faith in me and so do I. They listen to me carefully, that’s why out second half is more powerful most of the time”.

Abdallah Haidamu – ASFAR Coach

“We were not lucky today, but I thank the girls for their efforts and we learnt a lot from this tournament”.

“We want to win the third place medal and not go home empty handed. We will try and prepare the girls to concentrate on the next match”.
