The outcome of our progression in CAF champions league is base on God’s grace – Samuel Mathias.


It was meteoric rise for the pride of Benue as the clinched on the last minute victory to outshine the Kenyatta boys to a 3-3 aggregate on away goal to progress to the next stage of the CAF Champions League.

Speaking exclusively to is the scorer of the only goal of Lobi in an away tie against the Gor mahia of Kenya.

The outcome of our victory was based  God’s grace  on the team, honestly if it’s by our own  skills and playing , i don’t think we would have achieved this much of this  great result.

When we were approaching towards the end of the match, with having just a goal to our score line,  i was actually praying deep down with me to God that all our sacrifices both individually and collectively should not be  in vein .  eventually We got the needed results.

But i have always stood  on the path of optimism , that we will not loose the game because we were never taught to give up, even if it’s just a minute left, tables can actually turn around for our favour, which it played out that way for us.

 It was not my day to score a goal even though i almost had one, but what was my priority was a win regardless who scores.

I dedicate our victory to Almighty God and also to our fans who have never relented in showing love and support to the team.
