KEHINDE Ishola, captain of the Futsal national team, is very sad that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), cancelled the second leg of their qualifying match against Egypt that was scheduled for yesterday at the gymnasium of the National Institute of Sports in Lagos.
Though his team was outscored by the Egyptians 8-2 in the first leg, he told Goal.com that all the players had resolved to pay the Egyptians back in their own coins.
“I am so sad. We were really preparing hard for this return leg,” Ishola said.
“You know that most of us participated in the Gulder 5-A-Side finals last weekend and we had used that tournament to be match ready but God knows best,” said the highest goal scorer at the just concluded Gulder 5-A-Side tournament.
Another player who was really looking ahead to getting revenge against the Egyptians is Kabiru Nosiru, who was voted the most valuable player at the just concluded Gulder 5-A-Side finals.
“They did not treat us well at all in Cairo,” said Nosiru.
