Bashir hat-trick earns Enyimba victory

24 January 2014, 16:02Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Striker Abdukrahman Bashir scored three times to ensure Enyimba beat Bayelsa United 3-0 in the opening game of the Glo Nigerian Premier League pre-season tournament, the Super Four.

Enyimba put the news of their team manager’s death behind them to open scoring in the 42nd minute when Thomas Zenke supplied a cross that met a well-positioned Bashir, who side-foots into the net despite Bayelsa goalkeeper, Gideon getting a hand to it.

The People’s Elephants doubled their lead after the break, thanks to a master class finish from Bashir in the 68th minute. He lobs the ball over Gideon from way out after shaking off defender, Dengo.

Bashir, a former striker of ABS FC, completed his hat-trick in the 73rd minute to ensure Enyimba kick start their Super Four campaign in a winning note.
