Community Cup: Coach Sad Over Team’s Draw


Chief Coach of New Generation, Chris Erafez has blasted his players for their poor  display against Kosofe Local Council football team 1 in the opening match of the  Community Cup played last Saturday.

Kosofe LG 1 forced New Generation to a 2-2 draw in an encounter watched by a scanty  crowd at the Anthony Village Sports Centre.

Rasheed Opere and Kareem Bolanrinwa scored the two goals for New Generation in 32th  and 67th minutes to take a deserved lead in the half time. Noah Odufu and Jide  Oluwafisayo replied with a goal apiece for Kosofe LG 1 to level scores before full  time.

Erafez said his players were too confident and lost focus which allowed their  opponents to get their equalising goals at the tail end of the game.

“It was a bad day for me because the players let me down. We deserved to win the  match but due to the complacency of our players, they lost the three points at  stake,” said Erafez, who vowed to overhaul the team before their next game.
