After playing three straight away games at the beginning of the 2022 Nigeria Nationwide League One (NLO1) season, FC Ebedei has now recorded three straight wins after a 3-0 victory over OSOPADEC FC on Friday at FC Ebedei Stadium, Sagamu, Ogun State.
For the team Head Coach, Oladehinde Babatunde, FC Ebedei will continue to get good results at the peak of the league in a bid to end the season well at the top of the table.
“Our first three games were away games. It was not like we have played some home games and fumbled. We all know how the setting is in Nigeria as far as getting away points are concerned. When we are at the peak of the game, we were able to get a draw and at the same time got victories. We are in for the league shield.” He told www.kick442.com.
OSOPADEC FC abandoned the league game on Friday with the scoreline at 2-2 after the centre referee awarded a penalty to the host leading to the award of three points and three goals to FC Ebedei.
“Whichever way one looks at it, I am happy that the team has three goals and three points. We had a penalty when the scoreline was at 2-2 and our opponents refused the penalty to be taken.” The coach continued.
“Whether one likes it or not, players are bound to make one blunder at one time or the other. It’s not good to do it, but occasionally you do it unknowingly which was what happened. The team went away during the last game and won without any blunder. This time around they were able to commit two blunders at a time and our opponents took advantage of the blunders. Relying on the fact that the team has a good attack that can always come back might be responsible for those blunders.” He concluded.
FC Ebedei has produced players that have played for the Super Eagles of Nigeria as well as playing outside the shores of the country like Obafemi Martins, Paul Onuachu, Ajilore Oluwafemi, and Akeem Agbetu, amongst others.
