"We spend lots of time with them, to make them aware and they listen to the advice shared.

"I told him I wanted to see him go out there and to showcase his talent and to express himself.

"He did very well with his size and was expressing and was very energetic.

"That’s what we need from the youngsters and this can help all our different age groups at the national level.

"The country needs young players who can play at this level to get it right.

"I have always said that if you are a coach who is afraid of losing, unfortunately, you have already lost."
