When asked about today’s match against Orlando City, he said We’ve been watching [Orlando]; we watched the game they played last Saturday and the previous Saturday. The squad has evolved a lot in the last few years, and it is a beautiful stadium so it should make for a good match.”
He went on to say that “We need to get the right impression and the right understanding, and then we start to be better as a team. They’re very talented, but at every point, every game has to be won.”
Playing against the teams has been an instrument of preparation with the start of the new season drawing near. The match will take off today at 7:30 pm Eastern Time Zone/Thursday 00:30 West Africa Standard Time at The Orlando City’s Exploria Stadium.
