We interviewed the captains after the game and here’s what they had to say:
Olatunji: “We feel good winning our first game in the competition, we needed the 3 points to get back on track after the opening game loss. We should have scored more goals, I think we reserved that for the next game. Our league campaign just started, we will build on this win. Watch out for us, we will fight for the remaining available points. To our supporters, I say ‘Calma, we won’t let you down’”
Lekan: “Welllll, We played our best but guess we are not predestined to win the match but the match kept me and my boys up our feet. We know with more practice and coordination we can do better.I and my assistant coach know we are moving and very soon we will be like “ fumarprotocentraric acid in lichens” – unpalatable and impenetrable and concerning the games to come, we will reset our formation and try new methods that can get us up our feet.Thank you !!❤️”
