“We have been training at the Goal Project because of the artificial turf in Sudan,” said coach Stephen Keshi.

“But am not sure it’s going to be the same with the one here because I hear their’s is much newer and we don’t know if its first grade or second level but until we get there to find out.

“But all the same we have to take that out of our mind and just play 90 minutes and get out of there.”
