akwa united win fed cup

Akwa United has lifted their first ever trophy in Nigeria’s oldest club competition, the Federation Cup, at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

Zachary Baraje’s men put up a fine display to beat Lobi Stars of Makurdi for their first Federation Cup title in the Nigeria’s commercial city.

A fantastic first half free kick by Namso Edo and a volley from Afeez Awakan were all the Uyo based outfit needed to edge out the Markurdi based outfit in a keenly contested final.

A consolation goal from Lobi’s Barnabas Imenger in the 90th minute was not enough to deny the Akwa team the win.
