“I know our federation will help us to secure the tapes because we want to be ready for the clash and my girls will continue to train hard,” he added.

Khalifah also praised his girls for doing a fantastic job against Tanzania following their 5-0 win.

“I told the girls we had to use every opportunity we got and the second half was wonderful.”

“We had played 13 internationals before the game in Dar and we had not lost. So I told them what happened in Dar was the first half and we can correct it in the second half at home and we did exactly that,” he noted.
