Abdullahi Wins Man of the Match Award


A northosis Famagusta defender Shehu Abdullahi was voted Man of the Match in the Super Eagles 1-0 win against Chipolopolo of Zambia in yesterday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup African qualifying Group B match in Uyo.

The Cyprus-based defender put in a robust performance, patrolling the right flank of the Eagles and providing support for the winger ahead of him, which alternated between Victor Moses and Moses Simon.

Abdullahi crowned his effort with a delightful assist that led to Alex Iwobi’s goal which secured the win and qualification for Nigeria.

For emerging the best player of the match, Abdullahi was presented with a cash prize of N1 million as well as 10 bags of rice.
