After Nasarawa United stumbled in their quest to play continental football next year via the NPFL, they now hope to do so tomorrow by winning another Aiteo Cup, according to league hotshot Silas Nwankwo.
Nasarawa fell aside on the final day of the NPFL Thursday when they lost 3-1 at Abia Warriors to drop out of contention for international football.
Giant killers from the second division Bayelsa will now be the hurdle Nasarawa United will have to scale inside the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City tomorrow to top the cup competition and feature in the 2022 CAF Confederation Cup.
“I am delighted I am scoring goals and helping my team to do well,” Nwankwo told SCORENigeria
“We are in the final of Aiteo Cup and I am looking forward to help my club win the cup.”
The 18-year-old striker is joint leading scorer in the Aiteo Cup with three goals after he also emerged as the joint Goal King of NPFL with 19 goals.
