He described their opponents as “a good, vibrant and young team that would have gone far, if not for my team’s experience”.

“The Cup competition does not respect age or experience as young teams always want to prove a point.

“But we finished the job in the first 45 minutes and relaxed after the interval, because I knew that Dream Academy will score,” Bala said.

Speaking also, Dream Academy’s coach, Kenneth Opukeme, said he was disappointed that his team lost “because my team did not have a second chance”.

“We lost concentration in the central defence in the first half and that cost us two quick goals.

But we made some adjustments after the interval.

“The adjustments paid dividends as our opponents could not score again.

Instead, we reduced the tally and would have equalised during the dying minutes,” he said.

Opukeme also said his team would have won the match if the match’s centre referee had not denied them a penalty kick towards end of the match.
