Liberia football captain Antony Laffor is optimistic about his side’s chances of upsetting the Warriors when the two teams clash in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Speaking after the Liberians’ afternoon training session on Wednesday, Laffor said his side was focused on collecting all three points and nothing else.
“This is a big game for both teams. But the most important thing for us is to collect all three points. No other result will do so we will be fighting for victory on Sunday,” said the dangerous SuperSport United forward.
Liberia are bottom of Group A with four points form four games after disastrous start in which they collected a single point from their first three matches.
Zimbabwe held Liberia to a 1-1 draw in Monrovia when the qualifiers kicked off nearly a year ago, but Laffor insisted that match was water under the bridge.
“Zimbabwe are a good team and they managed to get a point from us last year but that is now history.
“We are concentrating on playing good football on Sunday so that we can get a result,” Laffor said. Fellow forward Deon William echoed his captain’s sentiments and commended the mood within the Liberia camp.
“This is a very important game for Liberia, but we have brought a winning attitude. We have a lot of players who have the quality to make a difference. We are in high spirits and looking forward to the game,” William said.
