    Some people only know how to criticize, but will never congratulate. As far as they are concerned, Rohr is the only good coach in the world.

    If we had lost this game, they would have flooded this page by now.

    I hope they have returned their calculators to where the bought them from (they know what I mean).

    Congratulations to the boys, the NFF, and the coach.

    Our boys have qualified for the next stage.
