In an interview on Front Runner’s podcast, Chipezeze said:
I wasn’t expecting this, you saw there were pretty tight contenders. As a goalkeeper, you have to lead the boys, some say the keeper is the captain and the coach, is everything and with the help of my team-mates, I think it played a big role.
