“We’ve a strong midfield and possess considerable quality in all other areas. We’re in very good shape, we’re training well and we can’t wait to get out on the pitch. 

“We’re completely focused on Sunday. We know that it will be a difficult match, but we must take away a positive result and put in a great performance.
