FC Ifeanyi Ubah have once again added another trophy to their cabinet after narrowly beating the current League champions Enugu Rangers via penalty shootout in Abuja.
The Anambra Warriors defeated Imama Amapakabo’s men 4-3 on penalties today at the main-bowl of the Abuja National Stadium.
Brazilian Coach Rafael Everton had earlier led the Anambra based side to a Federations Cup triumph last year beating Nasarawa United via penalties which qualified them to play Enugu Rangers who won their first major trophy in 32 years.
The 2016/2017 season of the Nigeria Professional football league begins this weekend, Ifeanyi Ubah will be visitors to a Kadiri Ihana led Kano Pillars side this saturday while Rangers host Abia Warriors the following day in Enugu.
