Excited by the performance of his players, Head Coach/Technical Coordinator, Cowbell Football Academy, Hycienth Nkwocha, disclosed that the young players were usually recruited and trained on the metrics of the game of football.
“They are learning very fast and we must use this medium to train them and improve on areas where they are lacking in skills and techniques.
Both teams displayed aggression, strong attacking spirit, goal-oriented style of football and they are disciplined,” he said.
Although his team was defeated, Captain of Indian Language School U-15 team, Tejas Khatavkar, commended his team mates for the courage and determination they showed in the game against the CFA squad.
