Lobi Stars thrash Enugu Rangers in Super Cup

The first half of the match saw the Enugu-based Rangers dominating play, with coordinated wing play and blistering passes, many of which caught the Lobi Stars' defence napping.

It was Lobi Stars took the lead when Samad Kadiri rode the challenge from two defenders to shoot past goalkeeper Nana Bonsu to score.

The remaining part of the first half saw a lot of wasted goal chances by both sides.

In the 60th minute, Rangers were reduced to 10 men, after Solomon Okpaku was sent off after receiving two yellow cards from referee Bashiru Salisu.

In an interview, Lobi Stars' coach Solomon Ogbeide praised his team for the victory, saying they deserved to win the game.

“I want to congratulate my players for this victory. Although we played our best today, there were some mistakes, which we will work on before our continental engagements.”

Lobi Stars' team captain Anthony Agbaje also told NAN in an interview that winning the Super Cup will help his team in their preparations for upcoming continental engagements.

“This victory tonight is a welcome development, most especially as we get set to compete in next year's CAF Champions League.”
