    The team that needed the game most won the match..the berkane guys are professional in the way they played throughout the game. They are always planning to find a way to lunch and attack,dey plan to score in every move. Even with the present of guys from Senegal and bokinafaso players in their team they are good with the ball .the level of confidence in the back line and mid field of the berkane guys is so high that dey always get the ball into the opponent half without making errors ..but with the Bendel guys dey want the to touch all their guys legs before dey lunch an attack.and most often pass to their opponent or shoot at their opponent instead of creating space to get to the weak point of the opponent.
    This is the reason it wil be difficult to win the afcon for local players for the local league..

    Maybe the ministry or Minister of sport wil have to sponsor a bil to the national assembly .any player playing in the Nigerian professional league must come from academy football..not going from work shop or market to play in the npfl.
