Speaking in a post-match interview, Coach Emmanuel Chinedu of Flying Angels said the match did not pose any challenge to his team.
According to him, their opponent was not a strong team.
“We did well because I told the players not to look down on their opponents, not to relent and to be focused, even if we are bigger than our opponents.
“Our focus is on the next match and we are going to face a National League One team, Ingas FC, so we need to work hard.
“We have to go back to the drawing board in order to get it right and brighten our chances of playing at the final of this state competition.
“Every club wants to reach the final to be counted as one of the state representatives at the federal and ours is not different,” Chinedu said.
