Aiteo Cup 2017: The Complete Review

Despite a new name and branding, the Nigeria Cup final concluded in familiar circumstances - with Akwa United defeating Niger Tornadoes in a penalty shootout - to become the sixth final in the last decade decided on spotkicks.

While the goalless draw was somewhat repetitive, there were various storylines that piqued the interest throughout the competition, which can be considered a success for energy giants Aiteo, who became the cup's first sponsors since Coca Cola ended their relationship with...

Aiteo Cup Final lays foundation for greatness

Let's be brutally honest: the Aiteo Cup final between Akwa United and Niger Tornadoes last night didn't make for great viewing, and that's putting it nicely.

Both sides struggled to string passes together, and the game overall was a poor advertisement for the quality of Nigerian football as it ended in a 0-0 draw after regulation time.

And as absorbing as the required penalty kicks were, they were just as abysmal as the game preceding them. A total of seven missed penalties between the two sides,...

Akwa United hold nerve to win Aiteo Cup

Akwa United have won the 2017 Aiteo Cup following a 3-2 penalty shootout win against Niger Tornadoes after a goalless draw in regulation time at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.

Gabriel Okechukwu's decisive penalty in sudden death secured Akwa a ticket to the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup -- a reward for their superiority and consistency throughout the competition -- along with the N25million prize-money.

Neither team impressed in regulation time; Abdullahi Wakili missing a big chance to put Tornadoes ahead...

Pyagbara stars in big Akwa win, champions crash out

Plateau United's hopes of a League and Cup 'double' went up in smoke on Sunday following a 4-2 aggregate defeat to Niger Tornadoes.

The League champions needed a strong performance after losing the first leg 2-0, but were already trailing by that scoreline at halftime. Ibrahim Babawo gave Tornadoes an 18th-minute lead, before winning the penalty which Isah Hussaini converted in the 41st minute.

Plateau pulled two goals back in the second half from the spot, but that wasn't enough to stop Tornadoes...

NPFL wrap: Plateau miss a golden chance

Plateau United failed to capitalise on MFM's slip up, while Enugu Rangers made it three wins on the trot.


Akwa United 2 Lobi Stars 1
First half goals from Musa Newman and Gabriel Okechukwu secured third-place Akwa a win against Stars on Friday, a triumph which only just keeps them ahead of Enyimba. Ifeanyi's corner was met by the head of Newman in the 20th minute, before Newman turned provider for Okechukwu, who rounded goalkeeper Okiemute Odah to net just before the break. Kingsley Eduwo pulled...
