Dolphins Beat ‘Inter’ To Make Fed Cup Round Of 32

A quick brace from rookie, Chiwendu Ali in the 30th and 34th minutes saw Dolphins through to the Federation Cup Round of 32 on Wednesday.
Ali, who joined Dolphins from Nigeria National League side, Go Round FC curled the ball beyond the reach of the Inter FC keeper in the 30th minute from the edge of the box and three minutes later forced a defender to handle the ball in the box for a penalty.
Chiwendu Ali himself stepped up to score the kick. Inter FC, a local football club in Nigeria, pulled one back late in the game but Dolphins held on to win 2-1.
Joseph Inya, Coach of Inter FC blamed the loss on minor mistakes from his side.
“You know Dolphins are a more experienced side and they capitalized on minor mistakes made by our players.
“It’s a game we could have won, but for the mistakes we made,” Inya said.
Dolphins Coach, Stanley Eguma commended his opponents for giving his side a good game.
“We had to score those two goals early. I commend my opponents for a good game because they are equally a good side,” Eguma said.
“I also commend my players because it was a very difficult game. It’s the beginning of the Federation Cup and I hope we will do better in subsequent games and go all the way,” he said.
Dolphins next prepare to play Enyimba in the Glo Premier League in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
