      Boyz na boyz whether U16 or senior team…oh boi na men we re talking abt oooo….those girl’s try set.

  • I like that the coach is playing young boys teams. But he should also make sure the team plays one or two friendlies with female teams for a good balance and assessment before AWCON starts next Sunday.

  • Even if it’s only one before the competition. I mean a good female team oh.

    They only called them boys. In reality they played against men of over 23 years old.

  • They even tried to score 1 goal against those men.
