Assistant team captain Philip Wokorach told New Vision that they are taking each game as a final and will not accepted to be intimidated by any side.
"We know our opponents are more experienced, but we are not ready for any level of intimidation because we know what it takes to achieve our goal, which is qualifying for the Hong Kong 7s," Wokorach said.
After the Italy game, the Tolbert Onyango boys will take on Paraguay and the finish their group games against Germany, a team that defeated them 19-12 in last year's HongKong 7s.
