The Nzalang Nacional will face on January 31 one of the biggest matches in its history and does so with high morale, convinced of the work that is being carried out. The coaching staff has already studied down to the smallest detail the strengths and weaknesses of Tunisia and Esteban Becker’s boys want to make history by qualifying for the semifinals of the CAN 2015.
The national team has had few days to prepare for the African Cup of Nations, so the days of work are intense. Watching videos, technical and tactical talks, workouts, fitness training… hard days of work, but they are looking forward to the match against Tunisia.
After beating Gabon, the Nzalang Nacional continues to work with humbleness, but is aware that it has options against the team of Tunisia, one of the most powerful in Africa, but against whom our boys want to pull off quite a shock.
The coaching staff has carefully examined the strengths and weaknesses of the Tunisians and will pose, as they did in previous matches, a game of touch, of fast and in-depth combinations, where the commitment of the players will be vital in the assistances in order to create superiority over the North Africans.
The cards are now on the table. They have come far, but the Nzalang wants more, will fight for more, will not be content with quarterfinals that taste of glory. They want the absolute glory: winning against Tunisia and break into the top four teams in Africa. If successful, this team will have no limits and pose a serious fight for the victory in the CAN 2015.
As President Obiang told the players in his talk, Equatorial Guinea has already won this competition by organizing it in 50 days, but the boys of the Nzalang will break their backs, so that the people can keep on dreaming with a national team that everyone knows that, in the future, will continue to give us many joys.
