I blame NFF for you injury and Chukwueze missed chance because had the pitch been better you would not have got that injury and Chukwueze would have buried that clear opportunity the pitch is to be blamed for that.. Otherwise I was happy with the game.. You boys did well considering the difficulty in having to maneuver a terrible playing ground. Nice victory.. Comback Stronger Ekong!
Get well soon El Capitan!
