“Akwa United is a good team despite the fact they lost, it is Football, they also planned to win but, unfortunately, they lost out.”
“We are still in the race, although it is a big task on us to deliver, we have to win to further keep Nigeria’s slot in the Champions League so that is what is firing us to make sure we do all we can to get a resounding victory and qualify to the next round”. He said.
