The Legacy Pitch, Surulere Lagos, saw a thrilling encounter between two brilliant teams, Madiba FC and Mailantarki Care FC, as they decide who would be the Nationwide League One Champions 2022.
Madiba FC emerged victorious after 90 minutes of exciting football, winning the FCT-based team by a lone goal.
Both teams pressured until the 28th minute of the game when Rabiu Nurudeen scored the game’s opener to put the Oshodi boys ahead.
Before halftime, Malantarki had a chance to tie the game up, but Madiba FC can thank goalkeeper Mohammed Tijani for making a classy stop to keep the player from FCT from doing so.
Madiba FC entered the locker room at halftime with relief, while Mailantarki Care was left to lament their poor defending.
Mailantarki Care’s FC attempt to score an equalizer in the second half was futile as Madiba FC held their defence under lock and ran away with the win.
The NFF’s newly elected executives, including Alhaji Yusuf Ahmed Fresh, Alhaji Ganiyu Majekodunmi, sports marketer Nkechi Obi, and NLO President Alhaji Mohammed Alkali, were among the prominent figures in Nigerian football who attended the final.
