Community Cup: New Gen, Fed Utd Tango In Opening Match


Attention will be drawn to Anthony Village Sports Centre on Saturday when New Generation  Football Academy begin their  campaign  against  Fed United in the opening match of   Community Cup.

The opening match is expected to be explosive as New Generation will bank on home support  to clinch the three points at stake. But football pundits believe that the match will be  tough for both sides.

Speaking ahead of the opening match, the coach of New Generation, Abiodun Ademuyiwa,  boasted that his team cannot afford to play a draw, let alone lose the match.

“My players are injury-free and ready to clinch the three points at stake. I am not  thinking of a draw against our opponents because we are going to play before our fans.  Anything short of victory will be a disappointment to our fans,” he said.

Fed United player, Sulaimon Abdullahi, warned their opponents to prepare for a tough  match, saying that his team are not ready to lose the three points.
