Coach Peter Bonu Johnson has told The Standard that he and his charges are ready for this evening’s formal return to international football against Mauritania.
Speaking at the end of an intensive training session of his final 23-man squad yesterday, Johnson said like everyone else, his boys are equally aware of the importance of the match and its objective and have vowed to give their best to ensure a respectable performance. ”They know we need to have good starting. We have since these days been working for the game. Friday and everything it fine for now,.
Asked how he feels about his final 23-squad, Bonu said all the men in the team merited their positions. “It was simple; only hard work gets one to be in the team. You have to fight for you position in the team. That s all,” he said.
