Benin Republic international Kola Raimi has identified that Lobi Stars’ key strengths heading into Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clash with Abia Warriors comes as a team, rather than through individuals.
The Umuahia Warriors host the Pride Benue in the midweek for matchday 15 of the NPFL, with Raimi anticipating the test ahead.
a�?Our aim is to win very well. But we have to respect all of their players. They have key players like Samad Kadiri and Anthony Okpotu, but I think the most important thing about them is the team as a whole,a�? considered Raimi in conversation with Futbalgalore.com.
a�?They have a strong side. I hope it is a good match and that the fans enjoy it.
a�?The game could go either way because we are two great teams. I hope it’s a good match, that the fans enjoy it and that as players we also can enjoy it out on the field.
a�?When it is like that, I think makes for a good show – I hope it turns out that way. Don’t forget we on an unbeaten run of four games. We want to make it three wins in the last five matches.
a�?This game is different because we are two great teams and two important teams and it is always special to play in a match of this magnitude.
a�?The key to winning is to keep fighting, playing as a team and defending the Abia Warriors shirt with pride.a�?
The winger was asked which Abia Warriors player he would remove from their starting XI if he had the choice.
a�?They are all very good players but I dona��t think that taking any of them out of the team is good because people like to see that all of the players are at a high level.
a�?Abia Warriors have a lot of them and that is good for the show. So, that is why I wouldna��t choose anyone.a�?
