Mokwena – We Know What We Have To Do

Rulani Mokwena says they have to be well prepared for Tuesday’s CAF Champions League game against Jwaneng Galaxy.

Sundowns will play their first match of the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League competition on Tuesday in Botswana.

They had been given a bye in the preliminary round, and need to get past Galaxy to reach the group stages of the competition.

Sundowns have ended 2020 top of the DSTV Premiership. They are unbeaten in eight games currently and ahead of second-placed Swallows on goal difference.

“We need to treat it as an isolated situation and focus on the next two games as isolated projects, in the sense that we need to make sure that we get a very good result in Botswana, and use the experience that we have as a team to be able to qualify ourselves for the group stage,” Mokwena said ahead of Tuesday’s game.

“Of course Galaxy FC are a good team, but we will get footage from our analysts, and our advance team that went across now, and we focus more now that we’re done with Golden Arrows, and try to make sure that we are well prepared for the game.”

“It’s going to be difficult, you can see even with the national team how there’s a resurgence in football with regards to what is happening in Botswana. So we have to make sure we are well prepared, we have got our work cut out for us.”

“But we know what we have to do. We might not be in the best space emotionally, but we know what we have to do, and we’ve just got to galvanise ourselves, unify ourselves, and focus on getting a very good result.”
