“At the end of the day we won and we are all happy so we have to encourage the boys for the next game so they can win again.”

The former Sunderland forward also explained reasons for his absence, citing personal reasons for his unavailability in the squad.

“There were a lot of things that I had to do so I called the management to ask permission and it was granted and at the end of the day, we needed new players into the team.”

“There are a lot of players that are doing well outside the country and we had to test them and they all came and did well in the friendly,” he said.
