Levi United Football Club had the opportunity to interview two players at practice. These guys as well as the rest of the team are anxiously awaiting the games this weekend. They are ready to play hard and win. Below are the questions they were asked along with their answers.

What is your expectation for this game?

  • Antonio: “I have high expectations for this game. The team has been fired up ever since last month since we were told we were playing Goldsboro FC. We’re definitely coming in with a killer mentality because we want to show one of our conference opponents that we’re not here just for fun.”
  • Enrique: “I expect the team to show up and demonstrate what it is capable of doing this upcoming fall UPSL season by making a statement that it is here to win.”

Do you feel like this team is ready to fight for a win?

  • Antonio: “This team is more than ready to fight for a win! The intensity brought to every practice session shows that we are more than ready to go to Goldsboro and come back with a win!”
  • Enrique: “This team is full of players that love to win, and you can see that at practice in every game we play. Coach E emphasizes a warrior mentality and that is exactly how we play. We have been working hard for months now and are ready to fight for the win.”

How has the preparation for this game been going so far?

  • Antonio: “The preparation has been great. Everyone’s getting used to playing with one another and showing a lot more confidence now. We have ballers on our team that understand each other and know how to play the game.”
  • Enrique: “I believe it took us a couple of weeks to understand each other and build some chemistry and get to a point where we are comfortable with each other. However, we have reached a good point and have built some good connections amongst teammates. Overall, we have been preparing really well for this game and are hungry for the win.”

What is your advice to the team for this game?

  • Antonio: “My advice to the team would be to come out ready to fight for the win with our guards up as well. The intensity and hustle we use on the practice field, transition it to the game field. Play hard, play smart and play with heart!”
  • Enrique: “My advice for the team is to simply practice what has been preached during training and just have fun.”

What is your prediction of the score for this game?

  • Antonio: “My prediction for the game is 3-0 Levi United FC coming back to Greenville with the win! If Goldsboro scores it will be because of a fluke or a mistake.”
  • Enrique: “My prediction for the game is a 3-1 win for Levi United FC.”
