Absorbing Aiteo Cup final masked tournament's flaws

The Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba had a carnival-like atmosphere ahead of the 2018 Aiteo Cup final on Wednesday, contested by traditional powerhouses Enugu Rangers and Kano Pillars.

Dignitaries, including state governors from Delta and Enugu States, the Deputy Governor of Kano State, and the top brass of the Nigeria Football Federation, graced the match, while A-list entertainers thrilled the spectators attending the conclusion of the Nigeria Cup, sponsored for a second year running by energy giants...

Aiteo Cup Final: Five hot talking points

Enugu Rangers broke a 35-year Aiteo Cup jinx to secure a sixth title, with their latest conquest coming at the expense of Kano Pillars at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, in Asaba on Wednesday.

However, the Flying Antelopes had to achieve victory the hard way, fighting back from a three-goal deficit to draw 3-3 in regulation time before edging the penalty shootout 4-2.

In this feature, KweséESPN takes a look at five hot topics to emerge from an exciting Aiteo Cup final, which produced one of the...

Kano Pillars, Enugu Rangers set for Aiteo Cup showdown

Five-time Nigeria cup champions Enugu Rangers meet Kano Pillars in Wednesday's Aiteo Cup final at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, with the winner securing a spot in the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup.

The Flying Antelopes will be desperate to end their hoodoo and win their first cup in 35 years, but they have a recent track record of falling at the final hurdle, having been defeated finalists three times since the turn of the millennium.

Despite Pillars' dominance in the NPFL, notably over the past...

Akwa United close the gap on league leaders

Michael Ibe's 76th-minute strike for 10-man Akwa United sealed a 1-0 away victory against Yobe Desert Stars on a weekend in which league leaders Lobi Stars were defeated.

Akwa, who had to deal with Ayobami Asekunowo's first-half dismissal, are just two points behind Stars, who became the latest heavyweight casualty to stumble in Omoku as they lost 1-0 to Go Round at the Krisdera Hotel Stadium. Shedrack Oghali headed in Akinwale Ogunjobi's 69th-minute cross for the winner.

Lokosa's goalscoring heroics must pique Rohr's interest

There is still just under half a season of football to go, but Kano Pillars striker Junior Lokosa has already helped himself to a first-time record.

The 24-year-old's brace against Heartland made him the first player in Nigerian top-flight league history to score 16 goals by the halfway point.

To put that number in perspective, Ishaya Jatau, who held the Nigerian league scoring record for 19 years, did so with a 17-goal haul in 1990.

Over the last nine years, the league's scoring record has come...
