Angola can qualify – Nando Rafael
Mateus of Angola
The Palancas Negras are on the verge of failing to qualify for the Africa Cup for the first time since 2004.
Angola trail Zimbabwe 3-1 from the first leg qualifier played on September 9 in Harare.
"I know our opponents well. I know what to do on the pitch and I am working to counter them," Nando told Angolan news agency Angop.
The striker of German Bundesliga club Fortuna Dusseldorf is hoping to go to South Africa after missing out on action at the 2012 finals due to a delay in his FIFA clearance to switch from Germany to Angola.
Pressure is even more on Angola to raise their game after failing to qualify to the quarterfinals of 2012 Africa Cup in January.
Angola reached the last eight in their previous last two outings in 2008 and 2010.
Meanwhile, visitors Zimbabwe know that they have to hold their nerves in front of a potentially boisterous crowd at Estadio 11 de Novembro in Luanda to end a six-year absence from the Africa Cup.
Zimbabwe coach Rahman Gumbo should feel upbeat about his sides’ chances, with the availability of key striker Knowledge Musona of Hoffenheim in Germany, who missed the first leg win due to injury.
Musona was also Zimbabwe's messiah in the second round, scoring in both the 2-1 away loss to Burundi and 1-0 win in the reverse fixture to clinch their final round place on the away goals rule.
