Watford full-back Hassane Kamara was pleased with the 4-1 pre-season victory over Wycombe Wanderers, in which he featured from the right-hand side after coming on for Kiko Femenía.
Ismaïla Sarr notched a double, while Emmanuel Dennis and Yáser Asprilla rounded off an imposing result at the London Colney training ground, as Head Coach Rob Edwards made multiple substitutions in a bid to further preparations ahead of the new campaign.
Ivory Coast international Kamara believes that the victory will be important for the team’s morale heading into next Saturday, when the Hornets play Southampton at Grosvenor Vale (July 23, 3pm KO).
“We’re happy because we won today and it’s very good for our confidence,” said Kamara.
“When we move more, someone comes back and another goes, we have a lot of chances. We have to keep it, we have to keep this level. This year the Championship will be very difficult, so we have to work and take this confidence to have a good season.
“The Head Coach told us to control the game and when we started the game it was difficult because we needed to move more, but when we had better movement, the game improved. When we played simple it was good for the team.”
Despite playing in a somewhat unfamiliar position during the win over the Chairboys, the 28-year-old is happy to contribute to Watford’s performances in any way boss Edwards sees fit.
He added: “I am here for the team so if the coach needs me to play at right-back or anywhere, I am here to help the team. The Head Coach didn’t ask for anything specifically in that position because it’s the same as left-back, just on the other side.
“It’s important to keep that confidence and the work offensively, but after, we have to be careful because we conceded at a set-piece. We have to be careful on that, keep the confidence and the good movement.”
