“As you can see it has been a very good and exciting match, both teams put in 100 percent,” Adeoye told Goal.

“The group is still open and we have a good chance of qualifying because we have one point now from two matches, UI have two points, LASU have six points from the two matches

“We just have to prepare ourselves for the next match. LASU is playing UI in their next match and we are playing ABUAD. We are looking forward to a good match.”
