Ahead NNL: Ngozi Elechi on cloud nine after pre-season Cup win

Go Round FC coach, Ngozi Elechi is upbeat after his side won the Ughelli pre-season tournament in Delta State.

In the final, Go Round FC beat Warri Wolves via penalty shootout after full-time ended 1-1.

The team had earlier beaten Apex Krane 3-0 and Excellent FC 1-0 at the Omoku center of the tournament to qualify for the semi final in Ughelli.

In the semi final, Go Round FC beat Sapele Lions 1-0 to qualify for the final and set up a date against Warri Wolves.

“It was a good opportunity to test the team in match situations ahead of the league,” Elechi said after the win.

“We had a large turnover of players, so it was like starting afresh, so this win means a lot to me and to the team.

“Now we have returned to Omoku to prepare for the league proper,” He enthused.

The soft spoken coach continued that the team is focused on the task at hand which is playing in the Nigeria National League and putting up a good shift.

“You can see that at the Ughelli pre-season tournament, we played four games, scored ten goals and conceded just two goals. This tells the kind of work we are doing on our attack and defence and we believe these will yield fruit when the NNL kicks off next month,” Elechi said.
