The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Rangers defeated Rivers United 2-0 on Wednesday to win the match played under floodlight at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.
The five-day NPFL Super-4 fiesta also has Wikki Tourists FC of Bauchi and FC Ifeanyi Ubah of Nnewi.
“I am working towards a standard. Today’s match might be good from the general look.
“But, I am not satisfied; I know we can do better, I know we still have lots of corrections to make.
“Technically and tactically; I am not satisfied yet,’’ he said.
His Rivers United counterpart, Stanley Eguma, said that he would work on the striking ability of the Port Harcourt-based side.
“It is not a good evening for us; since we did much of the playing but the game went to the home team (Rangers).
“We need to work on our striking ability and be able to finish perfectly by getting the ball into the opponents’ net,’’ Eguma said.
NAN reports that Rangers’ striker, Chisom Egbuchulam, brilliantly scored a brace to seal victory over Rivers United in the Match Day One of the competition.
Egbuchulam electrified the stadium when he put the Flying Antelopes ahead with his first goal in the 65 minute and added the second in the 78 minute from shots outside the penalty area.
The scores left their fan celebrating throughout the remaining minutes of the game and afterwards.
Earlier, the first encounter between Wikki Tourists and FC Ifeanyi Ubah ended 2-1 after the Bauchi side out-classed the Anambra Warriors with sound tactical play.
