Mauritius head coach Etienne Olivier Fidy Rasoanaivo has commended his team for what he termed as a good game against South Africa's Amajita. in the ongoing COSAFA U20 Youth Championships in Zambia
Rasoanaivo believes that his boys defended very well and just fell short in individual departments and not as a team.
-First and foremost let me congratulate the South African team. The game was not necessarily a bad match. Our strategy was to defend which we did but they (South Africa) put us under pressure and we made mistakes in individual departments but overall it was not a bad match, he said.
-In Mauritius we don't have a youth Championship so we did not have adequate preparation. We arrived 24hrs before the match because we thought we will play on Friday but to our surprise, we play today, he added.
