Striker John Okoli is optimistic that Al Mokawloon will recover from their unlucky loss to ENPPI in the last round of the Egyptian Premier League.
Their last outing ended in a 3-2 defeat at Petrosport Stadium (al-Qāhirah (Cairo)) and the forward feels his team will reverse the situation on Thursday.
While disclosing that his team will keep working hard to reverse their form, he is upbeat that Al Mokawloon can get things ticking again.
“The main thing is that we are aware of what we are going through and what our situation is. We have three points and can perform better,” Okoli told the Media.
“Al Mokawloon is an intense team, which fits in goals and especially strong defensively. We have been working every day to win always.
“We all know what we have to contribute, we are totally confident, we are all a pineapple.
“We have to win the game [against Tala’ea El Gaish]. It is not even a matter of choice or the team we are playing but we have to win on Thursday.
“We came close to picking a point against ENPPI. However, I believe we will get our second win over Tala’ea El Gaish [since] the whole team want a win. The fans deserve a win and we will go all out to get the win for them,” he added.
The Egyptian Premier League week three tie between Al Mokawloon and Tala’ea El Gaish will take place Arab Contractors Stadium (Osman Ahmed Osman Stadium) (al-Qāhirah (Cairo)) on Thursday. Kickoff is 4:30pm.
