With three matches to end the Norwegian 1. Division, Start midfielder Afeez Aremu remains hopeful of automatic promotion to the top flight despite trailing second placed Sandefjord by three points.
The Nigeria youth international insists wins in those matches will provide them the needed fuel for automatic promotion.
“We are behind the 2nd-placed team with three points with three matches to end the season.”
“In football anything can happen, so we are still in for the automatic promotion,” Afeez Aremu told Futbalgalore.com.
Afeez Aremu is eligible to play for Nigeria at the 2019 Africa U23 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The tournament will be played between 8–22 November 2019. It will determine which three African teams will compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics men’s football tournament in Japan.
