Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns right-back Anele Ngcongca says
the tough conditions they will face against ASEC Mimosas is not something the
club will complain about.
Sundowns take on the Ivorian giants at the Stade Felix
Houphouet-Boigny 18:00 (SA time).
The Brazilians are on top of Group A in the CAF Champions
League and could take a major step towards the next round with a victory.
The field in Abidjan is reputed to be in awful condition for
playing football, and the tropical heat in West Africa is another factor.
Ngcongca said as quoted by KickOff website: "There's the heat, but we have
experience enough to manage the game. The pitch is not one of the greatest
pitches, but we don't have to complain.
"We have to go out there and do the job. The most
important thing is to make sure the attitude is right, and the mentality is
"We've been in this situation before, so it's nothing
new. If your mindset is right on the day, anything is possible.
"When I look at it, both teams like to play football.
But I think it will be a game of mistakes when I look at the pitch. No one is
going to play nice football.
"On the day we are going to need soldiers because both
teams will be fighting for maximum points.
"There's no beautiful football on
that pitch. The most important thing is to see ourselves going through and
hopefully we can.
"We have not done well away, but if I look at the Lobi
game we could have done better. But it's water under the bridge and we need to
look at our next game.
"It's possible to collect three points. I believe it's
possible for Sundowns to collect points away because we've done it
