"So I took it as a determination so that it will be in the records. I'd have felt very bad because my coach told us to get the win.

"After finishing the second half my coach called me and said this is your last assignment for this school; so that alone was enough motivation.

'I've gained so much because I do not know how to keep before, it is from JSS 2 they have been nurturing so I learned it and gradually I've become a good goalkeeper," she concluded.
