Tudun Wada FC will lock horns against Palm Syrup FC in the final of the NLO Cup sponsored by telecommunications giant MTN and FirstCentral Credit Bureau, after defeating Green Lock FC 3-1 in the second semi-final on Wednesday at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano.

 

 

After a goalless 45 minutes, the deadlock was broken by Peter Michael after he gave Tudun Wada the lead from a well taken penalty in the 57th minute.

 

 

Tudun Wada then got a two-goal cushion on the one hour mark after Yusuf Mohammed fired home from a second penalty kick.

 

 

Green Lock FC then started what could have been a comeback for them in the 62nd minute, after Philip Onyedika found Damilola Adeyeye in the box, who after some careless defending from Tudun Wada, scored to make it 2-1.

 

 

As the game got to the last five minutes, it was a little too late for Green Lock FC in the 88th minute, as Mubarak Sani put the icing on the cake with the third goal, to send Tudun Wada to the finale in Abuja.

 

 

It will be another final for Tudun Wada FC, who were winners of the inaugural NLO Super Cup at the Uboma Secondary School Stadium Complex, Imo State.

 

 

The Bwari Stadium, Abuja will host the final and third-place match after the NLO Secretariat directed that there would be a third place game.

 

 

With this Kun Khalifa FC will battle Green Lock FC for the bronze medal in the 3rd-place game before the epic final on Saturday December 9, 2023.
