Both teams had met in the group stage of the competition, with the South Africans winning 1-0.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Dennerby said “We are carrying on with the same plans as always, we will have to improve our attacking play against the better teams and hopefully we will see an improved performance tomorrow.

“All our players are fit to play except something happens before the final. It is my first time of coaching on the continent and nobody will be happier than me if we can win.”

He added that “We need to stay strong defensively, we need to pass a bit more rather than play early long balls because that makes it easy for the opposition defenders.

“We need to take our chances and play like we did against Zambia and Equatorial Guinea.”

According to him, “We had treatment for all the players, rehab training, a post-match meeting & we’re training towards tomorrow’s game,”Dennerby stated.
