The team is poised, expect different attitude on Thursday – Coach Annor Walker

Black Galaxies’ coach, Annor Walker says he is confident that his team will put up a different attitude when they play against Sudan in their upcoming match against Sudan in the TotalEnergies African Nations Championship (CHAN) second group C match on Thursday.

Coach Walker said the team is poised to put their previous defeat to Madagascar behind them and turn their focus on Thursday’s match.

The team lost the opening game to Madagascar with a 2-1 score at the Stade Chahid Hamlaoui.

Speaking in an interview a day after their sad defeat, Coach Walker said though he was unhappy with the result on Sunday, he believes the team was poised to win against Sudan to secure a place in the next round of the competition.

“I wasn’t happy with my team, especially in the first half. We did not play the way we are used to. Our players were not mobile and after the changes in the second half we played better “ Annor Walker said.

“There was not a better side. We lost because we didn’t play the way we normally play. In the second half when we made our changes you see that we dominated the game but we failed to take our chances and that caused us”.

He also debunked suggestions that the cold weather conditions in Constantine may have affected his team.

He said the team will now focus and approach Thursday’s game with all seriousness.

“The weather there was okay compared to the previous days since we arrived in Constantine. Though it was quite cold.”

“After the game, the players were really down because we lost the game. We have met as a team and I can see how focused they are on Thursday’s game. “

“They know what is at stake on Thursday. They are ready and their attitude will be different on Thursday”, he reiterated.

The game on Thursday will be played at the Stade Chahid Hamlaoui at 8 pm (7 pm GMT).
