We reached safe in Luanda and have had our first training that was good. We needed to stretch those muscles after that long trip here. On the game against Petro, we know they are a good side and we respect them but we are here for a mission and we want to pick up a positive result. I want to make my first CAF trip with the club memorable and if i get a chance to play on Saturday i will give my best for the team
