We are focused to come strongly against Senegal. Like we played against DR Congo & Egypt, the team is coherent and positive. We held gym sessions on after the Egypt game, trained well on Wednesday and shall conduct the final session on Thursday. All the players are set as continue to assess those with slight knocks in the last training session. Whatever happened in the previous three matches is behind us now and is history. Our attention is for the Senegal game. Even concerns for the past two days with the players are in-house and we dealt with amicably.
