Gift Monday hailed Emmanuel Osahon’s tactical nous after he masterminded the rare 1-1 away draw at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Thursday evening.
FC Robo were at their best on Thursday against a very determined Delta Queens side who were desperate to add more points to the already gathered ones.
The ‘Lagos Landladies’ impressed by deploying a high press that snuffed out the impact of Maryann Ezenagu and Ikhekua Oghenebrume and worked to perfection as FC Robo cut their hosts closed at will.
The Falconets star who scored the equaliser in Asaba hailed her teammates and coach for giving their all and laying out tactics that eventually paid out.
“I have learnt a lot from Osahon Emmanuel since I arrived her from C.O.D Ladies. He is a great tactician and manager. He is managing the squad well, rotating when he needs to, picks the players that he feels are in form devoid of sentiments. She told thenwfl.com
“We knew the game was going to be tough and we pushed through even when they were all over us and scored before us.
“Picking a draw in Asaba is a huge result for those who know how difficult it is to play here. We are proud of ourselves and we look forward to a positive second round.
