Togo Want To Do a Zambia
Togo coach Didier Six says his team or Burkina Faso are both capable of emulating Zambia and Herve Renard to win the 2013 Africa Cup.
The two teams clash on Sunday at Mbombela Stadium in both sides first meeting at this stage of the competition.
Six said Togo reaching the final and winning it will put to rest their own tragedy in Cabinda when the team bus was attacked leaving one official dead as they drove from Congo-Brazzaville to Angola for the 2010 Africa Cup.
“The players are motivated to reach achieve what we want,” said Six at the pre-match briefing at The Winkler Protea in White River on Saturday.
“I have been charge for 15 months from my first game against Guinea and the players have changed their focus and moved on after that tragedy and turned a new page.”
The Euro 1984 winner with France said he was also looking forward to emulate his compatriot Renard and lift the Africa Cup.
“Everybody can be like Herve Renard. Up to now I personally don’t know how far I can go even Burkina Faso coach can be like Herve Renard,” Six said.
“Otherwise I am happy with the support from the fans, officials and discipline from the players to try and meet our objective.”
