Paulus Shipanga said this after his side Blue Waters defeated Western Spurs 6-4 in penalties at the Jan Wilken Stadium in Mariental after a full-time goalless draw.
Shipanga said that when you play cup games, you don’t have much of a choice as to how to play. “You have to score goals and defend your lead; this is the strategy we are implementing.”
His side is through to the last eight and he added that they are going all out and will put the best players on the field and hope that there are no injuries.
