“As I stated earlier, we are happy with the results from the two friendly matches we played in Buenos Aires,” Bosso was quoted by NFF media.
“We won one against an Argentina club and then drew with the Colombia U20 team that’s also taking part in this tournament. Those are not bad results.
“More than anything else, what the results have done is to give us confidence that we can get the job done.
“Victory over Dominican Republic on Sunday will stabilise our winning mentality.
“It is a factor that matters in championships and that is why we are determined to win on Sunday.”
