  2. Can’t complain except DRC found a way .
    Think the red card sealed our fate.
    Just bad luck we we were paired against Morocco-even their B team would have difficult.
    The goal scored by Morocco was merely their intent to get men into the box and pile on the pressure. Can’t blame keeper or defence.
    I think our keeper was outstanding.
    The boys weren’t bad at all.
    Too bad though, would have loved to see Patson or Fashion or Lameck score.
