Nasarawa United midfielder Onyeka Victor Okoro has praise the team commitment and never give up spirit which the team exhibited against Abia Warriors on Sunday
Nasarawa United rattled Abia Warriors 3-1 to move out of the bottom four for the first time since the commencement of the current season.
The oriental visitors held the scoreline in that format until rampaging Anas Yusuf drew Nasarawa United level in the 28th minute after his free-kick from 30 yards took a deflection off Abdallah Mohammed, his fourth goal for United this season.
Nasarawa United, desirous to be guaranteed some respite before the half-time, took the driver’s seat in the 43rd minute courtesy of Solomon Chidi who benefited from Abdallah’s misdirected shot on goal, to bring half-time scores to 2-1 in United’s favour.
” I can’t describe it, I’m overwhelmed with the team performance ”
“Before the game, we told ourselves that we are going out to win this match”
” I thought the match will end with just a lone goal, but to my surprise it ended 3-1″, he disclosed.
