AmaGlug-glug have a mountain to climb if they are to
progress to the continental showpiece, which kicks off in Congo in September,
after slumping to a 2-0 defeat against the Sudanese earlier in March.
And, ahead of the return fixture on home soil on April 10,
Kaizer Chiefs defender Gordinho admits the U23s are under no illusions as to
the task they face in overturning the two-goal deficit.
"We dealt well with the different and sometimes
challenging circumstances in Sudan. But it didn't go our way in the game. We
were under pressure from the start," he told Kaizer Chiefs' official website.
"It won't be easy at home. It will be a close and
hard-fought encounter. However, I feel that we can still succeed to qualify for
the All-Africa Games."
