This is the reason why you shouldn’t underrate any team. The group you are is  not tea and butter group, so must be ready to fight like champions that you are. You must fight to come first in that group because that is the group that make NWFL tick . Please let’s take the league seriously, one game at a time. There is no team that cannot be beaten, you will concede goals it is normal in football, but we must remember that we have a mission, and that mission must be accomplished.  Our eyes are on the continental scene, so let’s us fight rigorously together to achieve it.”
