Akwa United upstaged favourites Lobi Stars 2-1 on Sunday to win this year’s Nigeria Federation Cup.
Nomso Edo put Akwa United with a well-taken free kick after 36 minutes after Friday Ubong was brought down on top of the Lobi box. Abdulafeez Awakan doubled Akwa‘s lead in the 70th minute when he powered home a shot beyond the goalkeeper from the top of the 18-yard box.
Substitute Barnabas Imengar Junior pulled a goal back for Lobi in stoppage time from a brilliantly struck free kick. Sunshine Queens won the Women’s version of the Federation Cup after they defeated Bayelsa Queens 3-1 on penalties after full time scores stood at 1-1.
