  • Victory 7 years ago

    Kudos to the guys they did well .they are able to keep the ball on their foot.but the problem they have in that match was the attacking expect ,they wasted lot of chances which their coach must be corrected before the next game.

  • Ogundare tosin 7 years ago

    They should improve on their defensive midfielder and defenders

  • Really happy they were able to defeat the Senegalese, at least, they started on a brighter note. I believe they will win the trophy. Kudos to the Manu Garba boys.
