“We will keep training and retraining, making sure that the art of goal scoring continues. The essence of the game, is to score goals and prevent goals from being scored, so if we can score and prevent the opponents from scoring, I think the attackers have done very well”, he. Said.
The Oracle as Ogunbote is fondly called, defended goalkeeper Ovunda Darlintin over the goal scored by the visitors, stressing that the ball was deflected into the net by one of his defenders.
“To many people, the keeper has no excuse, but the goal he conceded, he has to be excused because it was a defllection”.
