Obinna Ogba Tips Dream Team For AAG Glory And Promises To keep Ebonyi United Moving.
The Chairman cum owner of Ebonyi United Football Club Senator Obinna Ogba has tipped the Samson Siasia tutored Dream Team VI to win the gold medal of the football event in the 2015 All Africa Games.
Ogba who led his team Ebonyi United to Abuja on Wednesday for a friendly match against the national U- 23 team which his team lost 3-0 to the Siasia’s team was full of optimisms having watched the Dream Team VI played with vigor, cohesion and great understanding to destroy his team.
He,however advised the Coach of the team Samson Siasia to work more on the attack line of his team who wasted a lot of chances in the friendly match.
“The Dream Team VI that is preparing for next month’s All Africa Games is a very solid team. In fact it is a very shock to me because I never knew that these Samson Siasia boys will beat my team (Ebonyi United FC) with this big margin- 3-0 without us scoring back.
“All the same we have to take it as a game. One of my defenders has just moved to El-Kanemi Warriors while two of my players are also injured. It’s a fine game and my team gave a good account of themselves.
‘I must say honestly here that Siasia has a solid team but still need to work more on his attackers because threw away a lot of chances at goal. You don’t do such things in a competitive game because one opportunity buried can give you the victory you so much desired to get. At the same time one opportunity thrown away can ruin the game for the team.
“So far so good, Siasia has a very good team. It’s a team I have known before now that’s why I brought my team that I know can give the Dream Team VI very hard match. I know my team is very solid and I am happy the Dream Team VI did not underrate us. If they had underrated my team it could have been a different ball game.
Ogba, however, reeled out his plans for his team Ebonyi United. “By the special grace of God we are on our way through promotion from the Nigeria Nationwide League Two to Nationwide League One. We are waiting for the Nigeria Football Federation to confirm our position on the league table. Once they do that we know that we are already in the Nigeria Nationwide League One. Our target from there is to gain promotion to the Nigeria National League. We hope that we won’t stay more than a season in NNL to gain promotion to the Nigeria Professional Football League which is the elite league in Nigeria”, Ogba disclosed.
