    A big congratulations to both Rivers utd and plateau utd, truly proud of both teams. Anyway, just want to encourage our league coaches to improve on quickness of movement of our local teams. Majority of times all our local teams; clubsides/national teams seem to play without any form of urgency. Might just be that attention, may not have been be drawn to this hence the reason they keep playing that way.
