Coach: Clive Barker

Kick Off - - FEATURE -

I was al­ways go­ing to pick the coach that won us the 1996 African Na­tions Cup and qual­i­fied us for the 1998 World Cup in France. No­body gave us a chance in 1996 as we had been play­ing in­ter­na­tional foot­ball for just four years after be­ing re-ad­mit­ted. Host­ing the Af­con was good and as the tour­na­ment went on, we got more self-be­lief and Clive gave us the mo­ti­va­tion to go out and do things most of us didn’t think we could achieve. He also made us a fam­ily, so I think com­pli­ments must go to him.
