Coach Monday Odigie was animated on the touchline in the course of the game, and he explained why.

“It was about the attitude, you cannot play a game like this and stay laid back, the team you’re playing against believe there is only one chance for them and this is the chance.

“So you need to come back and be the team you are, that means you have to work and fight for every ball, that’s why because we were too lackadaisical in the first half, that is why I talked to them that way,” Odigie told FL.
