Hundreds of Batch A, Stream II Corps members made the atmosphere at the Gateway International stadium electrifying as MFM picked their second away win of the campaign on Matchday 32 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Austin Ogunye scored the only goal of the game as the Olukoya Boys beat Remo Stars 1-0, but one of the memorable moments of the day was the vibrant corps members, who came out en-masse to cheer and applaud every good move.
At a point in the game, they started rooting for Remo Stars and booed MFM, as they felt the referee awarded Fidelis Ilechukwu’s side a cheap penalty – which was later missed by NPFL top scorer Stephen Odey.
Dr. Jinadu, a Batch A, Stream II Corp member, who enjoyed the game together with other colleagues, felt MFM deserve the victory as he praised some of the outstanding players in the game.
“It was a very exciting game, I expected the MFM boys to win, they did better than the Remo Boys.
“MFM no. 10 (Onuwa) stood out, I enjoyed his game and the keeper for Remo Stars (Adekunle) did very well, even as he didn’t get enough support from his defenders.”
The stadium was lively even after the final whistle, as the corp members posed for pictures with the NPFL players on parade.
