”I want to thank God first, then my players for the effort that they have put in to see us reach the final. It gives us great joy to finally reach the final after such a long time,” says Morocco, evidently elated at the prospect of bagging a title they last won in 1995.
While his opposite number Moses Basena reveals that he never imagined Heroes would beat them, Morocco on his part insists theirs is a result of proper planning that found favor with how the match eventually panned out.
”It was a tough match to play against the defending champions but we had planned to win. Had our game plan and I thank God it worked well for us. Going by the way we played, we deserved to win,” he added.
Morocco has also expressed confidence that his team will deliver this year’s cup when they meet Harambee stars.
