We started very late, about three weeks ago, while other teams are already in camp for six to seven months.
It is a game of football. What I need now is to go back to the drawing board and intensify my game.
I am going to do everything humanly possible to win the remaining matches,” he said.
The ex-international, however, expressed disappointment at the officiating, saying it was one factor drawing Nigeria football backward.
If you are beaten clearly five to nothing, no problem. The game of football is all like that, but manipulation is very bad.

Coach Edith Agoye of 3SC expressed joy over the result of the match, saying he was satisfied with the team’s 3-0 win at home.
Agoye, however, said that the team still needs to do a bit more on its performance,noting that the team was lucky to have got three goals from its few chances.
We were not perfect today, but the best thing is that we got three goals from the few chances we had.

We got the chances, we scored them. Nothing more, nothing less. The way the team is going now, we can do whatever we want to do,” he said.
He stressed that the most important task for the team now was to continue creating chances in the game and taking them.
