“It’s a great feeling because as defending champions and we starting the game in round of 64, we were determined to win.

“The instructions the coach gave us, it worked to perfection” he told Africa-foot.com.

“It’s a team, we are all fighting for us to win and no matter who keeps, we accept the outcome.

“So, it doesn’t matter me playing or not.

“If I’m not playing, my support is behind the team so it doesn’t matter.”
