“Perfect way to start the qualifiers especially at home and in front of our fans,” Okoye said in an interview with the team’s media officer Babafemi Raji.
” I’m very happy the team performed very well under the difficult conditions, we showed our qualities and on top of a clean sheet makes it even better.
“Going into the game I planned to keep a clean sheet. The most important thing is the three points after that the clean sheet because when you don’t concede a goal you already have one point saved.”
