Surulere Vow To Stop Oshodi


Team Manager of Surulere football team, Tamuno Tonye David, has advised Oshodi football team to forget the cup when both teams clash in the final of Under 15 Akani Olohunwa Cup, which holds on 6 August at the Campos Square Mini Stadium, Lagos Island.

David said he was annoyed when he heard  that coach of Oshodi football team   boasting   that his team are good for the trophy. He said his players will rather die on the pitch than losing to them in the final.

“We will not take it easy with our opponents when we meet them in the final. They are  boasting, but we’ll teach them a good  lesson . This is the time for them to taste defeat that they will never forget,” he said.

David, fondly called  Jawonlero by his admirers, said his team are well motivated and ready to give their best to lift the trophy, adding that anything short of victory will be a disappointment to the people of Surulere.
