The head coach of Flamingoes Bankole Olowookere has emphasised that they must win their second group match.
The defeat to Germany in the opening group match on Tuesday made the second match against New Zealand a must-win if they were to progress from the group.
While speaking about the match, Bankole said he and the rest of the technical crew are playing a fatherly and motherly role for the players to psyche them ahead of the match.
” We are going to work hard in the second game, we will block all the loopholes because we needed to win the next match.
I and the rest of the trecnical crew will play a fatherly and motherly role so that we can lift the spirit of the players ahead of the second match”, he said
The game against the Kiwis is scheduled to take place on Friday in South Goa.
