He also thanked Clubs and coaches for granting permission to the players summoned despite the invitation coming on short notice.

“I thank coaches that have stretched and allowed us to use some of the players bearing in mind that the League has not been stopped,” he said.

The coach indicates that this game helps to widen the pool of players as preparations for the 2022 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) Qualifiers commence.
