Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club forward, Adekunle Adegboyega has predicted a tough Gold Cup semi final clash against newly promoted Nigeria Professional Football League( NPFL) side, Remo Stars Football Club in Ijebu-Ode on Friday December 2, 2016.

MFM FC booked the semifinal ticket of the 4th edition of the Nigeria’s prestigious Pre-season Tournament after a 1-1 draw against Niger Tornadoes FC on Wednesday evening courtesy of 41st minute strike from Stephen Odey.

High-flying Remo Stars FC who qualified for the last four of the tourney with 8 points from 4 Gold Cup matches as Group B leaders will be up against the Olukoya Boys at the Pitch B of the Otunba Dipo Dina International Stadium in one of the most talk about contests of the semi final.

Adekunle believes his team will be victorious at the end of 90 minutes.

“It is going to be a tough and emotional encounter for us because Remo Stars have quality in all departments and the fact that our former chief coach Nduka Ugbade, is now their technical adviser, will make the match emotional for us.

“We have seen them played twice, we know how they play their games, they play with high intensity and they are very good with the ball but, I believe we will come out victorious at the end of the game,” he told sportstalkafrica.com.
