The NAGAFF Team Manager, Fwdr.(Sir) Okey Nerus said that his boys are in high spirit and are prepared to engage their opponents squarely in the competition.
Nerus revealed that the team had been training vigorously, putting their best to not only maintain top fitness for the tournament but to also defeat their counterparts and carry the trophy.
According to him, “We have carefully selected machines, from the Goal Keeper, to Midfielders, attackers and defenders from the pool of NAGAFF players who presented themselves for training.”
On the speculations that some of the organisations in the competition may have bought some machineries to play for them, Sir Nerus said, “I don’t know of any. If they ate buying machineries, then it’s most unfortunate.”
