Two goals from Armed Forces Alagie Fofana and Buba Sama was enough for the military squad to collect the maximum points with an impressive 3 nil thrashing over Real de Banjul as part of week seventeen fixtures of the ongoing GFA 1st division league champions played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Thursday.

In an interview with reporters shortly after the game, the head coach of Real de Banjul, Pa Samba Mbenga, did not find fault with his boys for their defeat, noting that Real were a better team than the khaki boys despite losing to them.

Pa Samba Mbenga, himself a former Armed Forces coach, further added that their opponents were much more precise.

"We played better and deserved something out of the game but the boys failed to capitalize on the numerous scoring opportunities they created," Pa Samba Mbenga told waiting reporters shortly after the game.

Pa Samba Mbenga, who was recently appointed as the head coach of Real De Banjul has proven beyond reasonable doubt that he can produce some great results for the team having guided them to many victories in the latter part of the 12-club championship despite failing to maintain the same momentum against the 'in-form' Armed Forces who are the most consistent team in the league.

Real de Banjul on many occasions went close to scoring but were denied by poor finishing.

Pa Samba Mbenga finally expressed optimism about the possibility of Real bouncing back in their next encounter.

For his part, the assistant coach of the jubilant Armed Forces side, Adama Jatta, described Real as a formidable side in the league.

Adama Jatta further went on to commend his captain Landing Darboe for his outstanding performance after helping his team thrash Real De Banjul noting that Delpiero is a player who is always willing to deliver for Armed Forces with his pace and skills that always give opponents tough moment describing him as a magnificient player. 

Adama Jatta finally expressed utmost confidence that Armed Forces will not concede any defeat in their remaining fixtures.
