Federation Cup: Crown good for title —Adeniyi

CHAIRMAN, House Committee on Sports, Oyo State House of Assembly, Adeniyi Adesina, believes Crown FC of Ogbomoso has all it takes to win this year’s Federation Cup.

Crown, had during the week defeated Nigeria Premier League side, Wikki Tourists 4-3 on penalties in one of the quarter-final games of the ongoing Federation Cup and is poised for semi-final showdown with FC IfeanyiUba.

“Crown has really done us proud in Oyo State,” Adeniyi told Tribunesport.

“They have the potentialities to go all the way and lift the cup, they only need the moral support of all well-meaning fans of football in Oyo State,” he added.

Adeniyi contended that the fact that the ‘Ajilete Boys’ defeated Premier League table toppers, Rangers International FC of Enugu and Wikki Tourists in succession, points to the fact the Federation Cup title is within the grasp of the Ogbomoso side.

“Crown defeated Rangers and Wikki Tourists in the Federation Cup, we have a giant killer as a team, others can fall as well.”

He further called on the Fatai Osho-coached side to keep the focus on their oustanding engagements.

“Crown wants promotion to the elite cadre and is in the semi-final of Federation Cup, we will do all we can to motivate them to be successful on the twin target,” said Adeniyi.
