Players are to be blamed, not coach

Letters, Normal

The National, Friday October 18th, 2013

 I BELIEVE the Kumuls should be held accountable for the recent loss to the Australian team. 

I believe there are few players who cannot meet expectations and are struggling during training and in games. 

If the coaching team can identify and omit such players, then a great team can be put together. 

Moreover, we Papua New Guineans always look up to Australians as our heroes, and if our own players watch and feel defeated in such games mentally, then how does one expect our players to outplay a team they see as their heroes? 

Coaches can do everything to help during training but if players do not know how to execute the game plan, it affects the whole team.
