After the encounter, coach Makaiba showed his dissatisfaction in the game, stating that his team needed to do more “It was a very good dis. by my .ers but we did not get the result we actually worked for. I am a bit disappointed not in my .ers but with the result we could not get. We keep fighting until the very last match of the season to ensure that we achieve our target.”
