Mulisa after naming his squad said, “I have told them that this game can change their lives in football. If they need to be professional players, they need to show their capacity in this game.”

The former Amavubi forward admitted that it will be a tough game because of Ghana’s rich history in football.

“Many of the outstanding performers in training will help us in the game against Ghana; the foreign-based players will add something good in the team, so we are confident the squad will do better,” he noted.

“We have players who have been working hard, determined and devoted to ensure that this qualifying match goes well. The mood and spirit in camp is positive,” added theformer APR forward.
