Enyimba International Football Club of Aba on Wednesday defeated Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt 1-0 at the ongoing 2014/2015 Glo Premier League Super 4 Invitational Tournament in Abuja.
The game played at the National Stadium’s mainbowl started with both teams losing scoring opportunities in the first 14 minutes.
But Chinonso Okonkwo scored from a good shot from inside the penalty area in the 15th minute to break the ice.
Thereafter, the game became a ding-dong affair as both teams tried to outdo each other, with Abdulrahman Bashir of Enyimba missing a good scoring opportunity.
Reports showed that Enyimba International FC have so far lost one of its three matches and won two, while Dolphins FC have lost all three.
Friday Christopher, Enyimba’s Assistant Coach, told newsmen after the match that the Super 4 Tournament has been helping them for their upcoming continental club competition fixture.
The first round first leg match in the 2015 CAF Champions League is scheduled for Feb. 15 in Aba.
“As a matter of fact, this competition has helped all the four clubs, because we all just came back from the Christmas and New Year break.
“We were not expecting more from the boys. But with this, I think we are going to grow stronger into what we are known for.
“You can tell from our previous performance and what we have done today. At first, we were relaxed but now we are better,’’ he said
