Moatoshi Tzudir, a contractor, was the chief match patron at the event.
Speaking on the occasion, he lamented that Nagas have been gifted with good talents in the field of sports but lack behind other neighbouring states.
He observed that the reason why Nagas do not excel in sports is because “we lack dedication and do not work hard to achieve the desired goal”.
“Talent alone do not make a person successful but sheer determination, dedication, patience and will-power is needed to become a successful person,” he asserted.
In this connection, he urged the players to be sincere in whatever they do.
Altogether, 17 teams participated in the first Penalty Shootout, 2021 organised by Greaton Club.
