On the test game against Flying Eagles, the coach said :“Well, the match was good for both teams because we are preparing for the elite domestic league while they are preparing for a major tournament.

“For now, whether you win or lose isn’t the most important thing, but being able to identify the areas of weaknesses and subsequent corrections.

I do hope they will exhibit the same fighting spirit when they begin their campaign in the U20 AFCON in Egypt,” He said.According to multiple sources, the new NPFL season is expected to start in January and as an abridged format.
