11:42 am on 16 April 2011

Despite going in as underdogs, Amicale FC remain confident they have what it takes to beat Auckland City tomorrow and win their first ever Oceania Champions League football title.

Auckland lead 2-1 after the opening leg in Port Vila and the Vanuatu champions need to score a minimum of two goals to have a shot at victory.

Amicale's technical advisor, William Malas, says with that in mind their attacking strikeforce has come under special focus in training.

He says despite being written off in some quarters, the team truly believes they can win.

"Our loss here with Auckland city is like an open wound for us. It's a process for us to achieve and we believe and have dreamt for a long time, so we believe this second and final will be a miracle for us."

The O-League winner will qualify for the lucrative FIFA Club World Cup, which will be played in Japan in December.
