“I wanted to play either Simba or Yanga. I told my boys because I wanted them to experience the atmosphere of playing the two teams. The plan was to get here and play them.

“Our plan was to dominate the game by attacking because you can’t defend when you are playing a big team like Simba. You just have to attack and we never wanted them to build from the defense."
