In that encounter, Nwachukwu Adanna, who put up player of the match performance, scored four goals, while Folounsho Amina and Animashaun Aisha completed the rout.

Edeh said the high scoreline in the FCT FA Cup final showed his team was prepared than ever to play in the Federation Cup when it starts in May.

Edeh, who heaped praises on the girls, added “that match is an assessment before the rigorous NWPL games that lies ahead of us.

“We will shape up and ensure we get better by the day.”

“The absence of Nwachukwu Adanna, due to injury, was felt, but now that she is back, it is a good news and booster for our quest, playing in the NWFL Super-six and final of the 2023 Federation Cup.

“This time, unlike last season when we were booted out by Nasarawa Amazons, we are more focused on the FA Cup title.” (NAN)(
