Speaking after the match, the Head Coach of FC Abuja, Henry Hassan, praised his team for the victory, saying the team had done well.
“I am happy with the performance of my team. The boys have done well. Though, we still have so much work to do.
“We will however go back to the drawing board and concentrate on some of the errors we had in this match. That way my team will next time perform better than this,” he said.
On his part, Adamawa United FC’s coach Joshua Stephen also appreciated the performance of his team in spite of their loss.
“My players did well, even though we lost. There was a loss of concentration from my defence. That is the reason why we lost the game.
