Dogo upbeat ahead Gold Cup final

Sunshine Stars head coach Kabir Dogo is optimistic that his side will beat Niger Tornadoes in the Ogunjobi Gold Cup final.

The 7th edition of the nation’s prestigious pre-season tournament will come to a climax on Saturday at the Kwara State Stadium in llorin.

The Owena Whales beat Kwara United 4-2 on penalties after their semifinals clash ended one goal apiece.

Dogo said he understand that both sides in the final are evenly matched but insist that his side have the edge against their counterparts from Minna.

“Let me be modest, all the teams that have come this far in the tourney can win the final. Tornadoes or Coach Abubakar Bala are not new to me, as I feel we are up against Kwara United again.

“For me I saw one or two loopholes in Tornadoes during their semifinals clash against Remo Stars so be rest assured that we will profit from it in the final,” said the former Nasarawa United tactician.

On his team’s readiness for the final despite managing less than five goals Dogo said there is nothing to worry as his side are determined to get it right on Saturday.

“I don’t have a perfect team but I have players that can make the difference as what has kept us going is the continuity in the team.

“I want to thank my employer’s for thinking in line with the technical crew and for approving our participation in the tournament despite some financial constraints.

“We promise to make our fans back in Akure proud making a history on Saturday,” he said.
