Super 4: Rangers’ Egbuchulam pleased with brace

08 December 2016, 11:32

Enugu - Enugu Rangers striker, Chisom Egbuchulam has voiced his sentiments following his match-winning performance against Rivers United in the second game of the annual pre-season tournament of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), the Super 4 on Wednesday.

Egbuchulam netted a spectacular second half brace to put United to the sword at a frenzied Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.

“It was a great game and we got a deserved three points,” he said.

“It wasn’t an easy game but we thank God for the victory and I am also pleased with the goals I scored,” he said.

Rangers struggled for long periods, especially in the first half against the Port Harcourt club on Wednesday.

Egbuchulam identified improvements in the United side that fell 0-2 at the Cathedral on Wednesday, noting that the new players drafted in by Stanley Eguma has made the Port Harcourt club look a more decent proposition.

“They can give Nigeria good representation on the continent.

“There are a lot of changes in the present Rivers United team.

“They have a lot of new players who are very good as well.

“This is a much better Rivers United team,” he said.

News24 reported that Wednesday’s clash at the ‘Cathedral’, the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu takes even more significance as it is the first time both sides will meet since the Flying Antelopes outclassed the ‘Pride of Rivers’ 4-0 in a shockingly one-sided Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game played on September 4.
