Handler of the FCT side has heaped praises on the Abuja based side despite their exit from the ongoing nationwide football competition

Musa Talle has expressed joy over the impressive display of Supreme Court in the Federation Cup despite narrowly missing out on a quarterfinal place.

The nation’s third division finished third with two points following draws against Sunshine Stars and Enugu Rangers before a late 1-0 in their final group stage encounter to El Kanemi Warriors.

Prior to the group phase, the Abuja based outfit recorded giant-killing results, eliminating eight-time winners Shooting Stars and Nigeria Professional Football League side Go Round.

Having exited the competition, the FCT FA supremo has showered encomiums on Henry Haggai’s side for holding their own against high-flying elite division teams.

“I am really proud of Supreme Court for the quality representation they have the FCT," Talle told media.

“It was a brilliant performance from the players because no one expected them to play the way they did. Nobody gave them a chance, especially against strong Nigeria Professional Football League teams like sunshine Stars and Enugu Rangers and even El Kanemi Warriors.

“They never looked down on themselves and despite their small budgets and the fact that they were playing in the third division, they were still able to hold their own against the biggest teams in the land. Even though they are out, I am indeed proud and wish to congratulation them.”
