29 February 2016, 13:06

Enugu - Rangers International FC on Sunday defeated Niger Tornadoes FC 2-1 in a week three match of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The match, which was played at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu, witnessed a good turnout of football fans in the Coal City and its environs.

It was action-packed as the fans were thrilled with quality play by both sides.

Rangers’ first goal came barely two minutes into the game, through a header from striker Godwin Aguda, while the second goal came in the 20th minute through midfielder Osas Okoro.

Niger Tornadoes, however, struggled all through the second half to come back into the game, and they were rewarded in the 78th minute of play through Lanre Femiyaro’s header.

Reacting to the match’s outcome, Niger Tornadoes’ coach Abdullahi Biffo said his players started late into the game.

“We started showing them the stuff we are made of in the second half and it was just unfortunate we could not equalise,’’ he said.

Rangers’ coach Imama Amapakabo said that it was a good game and both sides put up their best.

“However, we were able to defeat the visitors through getting into the game from the onset,’’ he said.
