NPFLDMSuperCup: Enyimba pip Rangers to start on a high

Published on: 07 December 2022

Eight times Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) got a crucial win as they started their campaign in the IMC sanctioned Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation Super Cup tournament on a high.

The Aba Boys scored once without a Rangers reply to get maximum points at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne on Wednesday.

New Enyimba acquisition, Akanni Elijah gave the People's Elephants  all 3 points with a sumptuous strike in the second half.

After an end to end encounter in the first half where the two sides got chance after chance with Rangers coming off slightly better.

But it remained goalless until Akanni thunderous strike in the 71st minute changed the complexion of the game.

It ended that way even though the Aba side should have added one or two to their tally but for missed chances.

Enyimba's Chibuike Nwaiwu emerged the man of the match after the match.

Enyimba play Insurance of Benin while Rangers of Enugu square up against Shooting Stars on Wednesday.
