Ogwuche
Mathias inspired Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) to a hard fought 0-1
victory over Southwest rivals, Osun United FC in one of Group B2 opening
fixtures in the Nigeria National League (NNL) on Saturday in Oshogbo, Osun State.
Ogwuche
netted his first goal for the club in the 63rd minute of the game
latching onto Solomon John’s pass before fighting hard to overcome his
markers to convert brilliantly for the Sky Blue Stars.
Speaking
with RSFC Media, the former Stationery Stores and Dream International
forward says he feels satisfied netting his first goal for the club
(Remo Stars) in his debut match against the Omoluabi Giants.
“The
victory is a good thing, I am very happy because we have trained a lot
for the game, so going for the game and also winning it is something
special for us. I will first appreciate God and also the Coach (Fatai
Osho) for the hard work put in place for us.”
“When
we prepared for the game, the coach emphasized more on the strikers
about goalscoring skills and others things, it has always been difficult
to get the goals since I joined the team, I scored just two (2) goals
in the preseason games but when I was called upon to take the lead role
against Osun United, all I focused on was to get the goal to prove
people wrong that I am a better striker that has come to help the team
and I am very happy I got a goal in my first game.”
“I
know I tried my best in that game because I had to put my all in all in
that game and also to make people believe so much in me.”
“When
I joined the team, I asked few questions about previous strikers that
have played for the club and their good performances, so I had it
straight in me that I can work more to perform better than them and my
target is for me to gain promotion to topflight football and also be the
highest goalscorer for both the club (Remo Stars) and the league (NNL).
He concluded.
Meanwhile,
the Captain on the day, Saheed Lasisi also expressed his contentment
captaining the victorious side over the weekend against Osun United FC.
“I
appreciate God Almighty, its the first game of the league and also
captaining a side that got maximum points away from home is a good thing
to behold and it will go down well in my history book.”
“We
played well, I am satisfied with the game because it was a derby game
and also tensed, the team is really happy and we are working towards
gaining promotion back to the Nigeria Professional Football League
(NPFL)”

“The team is
relatively new, we have quality from our old players and also the new
ones are exceptional so it is going to boil down to team work and I am
sure we will do the club and the fans proud.” He said.
The
Sky Blue Stars will travel away from Sagamu, Ogun State to take on
Stationery Stores of Lagos in Match Day 2 of the Nigeria National League
(NNL) next week Saturday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.
