    Gor Mahia is a side that is recognised very much in Caf champions league and for Lobi Stars to have edged them out to pick a place in the group stage of the competition gives us hope that they are a side capable of going far in it. They just need to remain focused amd take every chance that come their way. Wishing them success as the bear the Nigerian flag in the competition.UP STARS!

    In football, they say; “it’s never over until it’s over”. After Lobi stars fc lost to Gor Mahia fc 1-3 in the first leg in Kenya, some football fans {including my humble self} wrote off Lobi Stars fc, but with the solitary away goal scored by the team in Kenya, Lobi Stars fc just needed to score two un-replied goals in the second leg match to be played in Nigeria, which they did. Lobi Stars fc did the needful yesterday by scoring two unreplied goals against Gor Mahia fc to play in the group stage of the lucrative CCL, where they will rub shoulders with top football clubs in Africa. Thank God the goal scored by Gor Mahia fc in the second leg match in Enugu was disallowed; if not, it would have been a different story altogether.
