Angolan national team captain Manucho told Goal.com South Africa that they will get all three points in their second match of the 2013 Afcon in Durban
Angola played to a 0-0 draw against Morocco in their opening match on Saturday.
“We didn’t play well against Morocco on Saturday night. We failed to score which was unusual but we will win our next game,” said Manucho.
The former Manchester United striker brushed off rumours that he was forced to play, as Manucho admitted that he is still nursing a thigh injury but assured Angolan fans that he wants to play on for the entire Afcon tournament.
“It’s a thigh injury but the team doctors told me that I can play and I played the whole 90 minutes against Morocco so there is no need for our fans to panic, because this is not too serious,” added Manucho, who is currently plying his trade at Spanish La Liga outfit Real Valladolid.
