Senegal expect physical encounter with Angola

TAMALE, July 25 (Reuters) - Senegal coach Henryk Kasperczak said he expected a physical battle when his side face Angola in Sunday's African Nations Cup match.

Kasperczak also dismissed suggestions that Senegal were favourites for the Group D game which will leave the winners on the brink of qualification and the losers facing a first-round exit.

Angola coach Luis Oliveira Goncalves has already declared his team to be the underdogs and said the pressure is on his opponents.

'It's not true,' Kasperczak told reporters. 'Angola played at the last World Cup, they're a very good team who've made enormous progress and they're capable of surprising they're opponents.

'Their players are athletic, they are very strong in combat,' added Kasperczak whose team are regarded as one of the most physical in the tournament.

The teams enter the fray with one point each from their opening games, Senegal having drawn 2-2 with Tunisia and Angola 1-1 with South Africa.

'It's a decisive match where the qualification is at stake,' said the Pole, who is coaching at his fifth Nations Cup.

'It's always difficult to qualify from a group of four. You've seen that in Group A, Ghana still have to play for a place against Morocco and alot of things will happen in the final rounds of matches.'
