Juan Micha Obiang (Coach)

"We defeated Algeria, the best national team in Africa, but we will stay on earth. We will play against Sierra Leone, a brave team, and we will put all the chances on our side. What happens on the field is what counts. Our strength is the collective spirit. Each match has its story. We will fight with our means, a system of play, and ambition".

Emilio Nsue Lopez (Captain)

"Football is sensational. We are proud of our journey so far, but to make the story inspiring, we must finish the job and qualify to the Round of 16. Beating champions of Africa is extraordinary, but nothing is worth without qualification for the second round".
