Amicale hoping for home crowd boost

11:09 am on 1 April 2011

Amicale FC are hoping home-town support will give them an edge in tomorrow's first leg of the Oceania Champions League football final against Auckland City.

Auckland are two-time previous winners of the competition and have a team stacked with New Zealand internationals and a number of other imports from around the world.

Vanuatu champs Amicale, meanwhile, are in their first year in the O-League and the team's technical advisor, William Malas, is confident his players wont suffer any stage-fright on the big stage.

"Aftet the training I told them that if you guys can make it through all these O-League games, home and away, with all the other nations, I don't see any problem with you guys to do it here in our home ground."

William Malas says to have a chance against Auckland City they must keep their focus and stick to the game-plan.
