Speaking after the game, The winning Coach Richard Opanuga express satisfaction with his boys performance "I must tell you, i am very excited at the moment and with the entire team performance, we have our game plan and it worked for us perfectly. 
" I would say our opponents were quick going forward, we are able to close down all space in the midfield, we have fast wingers which really helped us to create more chances in the second half of the game.
"My boys absolutely interpreted the tactics perfectly, the style of play today is similar to what we are use to, during our participation in America Soccer League, he concluded
