This seems to be mostly for home boys. I hope they will prove themselves and that the confidence reposed in them is not wasted.

For those that follow the local league will know that we have a good team here. As for Mohammed Gambo, he is good striker that had a bad outing at the confed. that all i can say.

By the way, i am suprise Reuben Gabrial not in the team? or has he left the country or is he still injuired.
