 "Let us not talk about support, but I can say things are improving. We have been working with the BFA to clear whatever obstacles although it's late. I would have liked to do some things earlier," Tshosane said.

He said he is happy that the BFA is considering his proposal to have an expanded technical team, although it has come late.

"I have long given them the names of other technical members. I am happy that they saw what happens when we went for the draw (in Equatorial Guinea). There is a lot of work that needs to be done and I cannot succeed alone," he said.  Tshosane

attended the AFCON finals draw, which was conducted in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on October 29. He acknowledged the tough challenge ahead as the Zebras are pitted against powerhouses Ghana, Malia and Guinea. He would not be drawn into disclosing his strategy at the AFCON finals, saying every coach goes into a tournament to win.

"We should plan accordingly, as a coach, you prepare to win. We will see what happens, as you are aware that we are in the toughest group. What is critical is that, we double our efforts," Tshosane said.

The Zebras play Nigeria on Saturday and an unnamed opponent next  week Wednesday.
