Daniel after lifting the trophy said his father Dele is his role model.

”My father is my role model and he has been encouraging me to play football.

”I’m happy we won this competition and I’m hoping to be a better goalkeeper, so that I can play outside the country,” the Stephen Fountain Primary School,” Ilorin pupil was quoted to have said.
