Ifeanyi Ubah tastes first ever title glory emerging Nigeria’s Federation Cup kings


Ifeanyi Ubah became the newest winners of Nigeria’s oldest football competition, Federation Cup following a 5-4 penalty shoot-out victory over Nasarawa United at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

It was the first ever cup final between both teams and they held on tenaciously to a goalless scoreline in regulation time.

In the resultant shoot-out, Seun Sogbeso, whose goal from the penalty spot steered Nasarawa United to the final at the expense of two-time CAF Champions League winners, Enyimba FC, saw his tame kick saved by FC Ifeanyi Ubah goalkeeper Uche Okafor.

The feat is the first-ever Federation Cup glory for the self-styled Anambra Warriors that is bankrolled by business mogul, Chief Ifeanyi Ubah and they will now represent Nigeria in next year’s CAF Confederation Cup alongside Wikki Tourists.

League champions, Enugu Rangers and Rivers United will vie for honours in the prestigious CAF Champions League.
