Akanni’s screamer hands Enyimba first win at Dozy Mmobuosi Super Cup

Enyimba stomped to a winning start at the Dozy Mmobuosi Super Cup with a 1-0 win against Rangers International on Tuesday evening at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne.

Elijah Akanni provided the all-important winner in the electrifying clash of two of Nigeria’s biggest.

The substitute blazed in a low drive eighteen minutes from time after another substitute, Nonso Nzediegwu set him up in the box.

Chijioke Mbaoma came close to doubling it in the closing stages with a delicate curler that rattled the upright, whilw Olorunleke Ojo was given some work to do in added time, but stood up to it nicely, tipping Christian Nnaji’s shot over.

The result means that Finidi George’s side will have the final in sight if they follow up with another win in Wednesday’s fixture against Insurance FC.
