Mr Steven Dias is the head coach of AUA FC. He had this to say about their forthcoming encounter versus ARA FC: “I’m feeling confident and the boys are well prepared. It is going to be a good match against a very good ARA FC team. They won both their matches so far, so I’m sure they will be high on confidence. But we’re ready and looking forward to a great game tomorrow.”

” I was surprised to see the amount of fans that turned up for our last match and that was one of the reason that the team performed so well last match coming from a goal down to win. We are expecting the same amount of fans tomorrow as they play an integral part in motivating us to strive for the best. We will give our best and entertain our fans by playing good football and try to make it two winsin a row.”
