Speaking to Nampa on Saturday, co-coach of City Boys, Immanuel Boois said they went into the match only aiming for a victory and knew they would stop Kingston.
“We went into this game with our best defensive record thus far in the first leg. We only conceded four goals in 11 matches, but Kingston United is a free scoring team which was unbeaten thus far,” Boois said.
He said they told the boys to attack because if they go in to defend, Kingston will score.
“Our aim was to keep them in their half and pressure them until we get a breakthrough.”
Boois said the first goal put pressure on Kingston and made them attack the City goal, which opened up space in Kingston’s defense and allowed City to score.
