Rivers Angels duo of Evelyn Nwabuoku and Asisat Oshoala have credited their side's win in Sunday's women Federation Cup final to hardwork.
Sunshine Queens bowed 2-0 to Edwin Okon's side courtesy of goals from Asisat Oshoala and Stella Mbachu at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
According to Oshoala and Nwabuoku, the result was a result of their efforts in training while hoping to win the league title to end the season on a high."I feel very happy about today's result and coming out in the second half to make a chance for my team. I think God has been very faithful to me and my career and I will never leave him," Oshoala told Goal.
"It's God's mercy that has been keeping us. Looking at the game we have today. We had a lot of hard luck like not scoring after creating a lot of chances. Looking at the league, we have another title to pursue.
"I think hard work has made us a stand out. We trained every day like we are going to play match every day and happy we are getting the good result for it. I just feel its hard work,” she said.
Captain Nwabuoku on her own part hailed her side's winning attitude and expects better display in their remaining league games.
"The victory wasn't an easy one, but we were prepared for it. We knew this is what we were going to face, so we prepared our mind toward it and kept going," Nwabouku told Goal.
"It's all about winning and not minding where the goals came from. That's part of football and that's the disappointing side of football creating chances and not been able to covert them.
"No one will be happy about it. It’s a game of football, we just hope to improve from there. We knew we were going to win, but we really didn't know the goal margin. Before the game, we were even thinking of 3-0, but we really thank God 2-0 is not a bad result.
"If there is anything I appreciate in this team is the hard work and winning mentality we have within us. And we give God the glory.
"For a double title, it’s very possible; we are gunning for the double. Come Wednesday we hope to wrap it up," she concluded.
