    Congrats to the Falcons, but those over-age(s) that Chris Danjuma is parading as U-20 only time will tell.
    Go to secondary schools and get real U-20 girls. Nigeria has been cheating in U-20 men football since only God knows when and we have never won. So use real U-20, even if you don’t win the cup, we win otherwise

  • My problem is, where we can watch it online since the TV station dose not show it..
