Basetsana winger Lelona Daweti wants the team to remain positive ahead of their tough second leg clash against Nigeria in the final round of the Under-20 World Cup qualifiers this weekend.

Having been in this situation before whereby the team made a remarkable comeback by beating Burundi 5-2 on aggregate after losing the first leg 2-0, Daweti believes the team can go on and win the tie.

“We have to remain positive and united as a team. We have been in a similar situation against Burundi and came out top. Even though this is a much stronger opponent, we have a talented group of players who play with heart and dedication. Nothing is impossible and we need to go in there with that mindset” said Daweti.

Basetsana are set to depart for Nigeria this afternoon (Wednesday).
