Katsina United beat Abuja selected side in pre-season friendly

Image result for Katsina UnitedKatsina United boosted their confidence ahead of the new NPFL season after they defeated Abuja Selected 2-0 in a pre-season friendly played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja on Sunday.

Ibrahim Sulaiman aka Dan Sule opened scoring for ‘Changi’ Boys after 31 minutes, when he finished off a great team play.

Former Mighty Jets striker Frank Eghawerba doubled the lead late in the game after his poorly-taken penalty was saved by the goalkeeper moments earlier.

Abuja Selected, parading the likes of Rio Olympics bronze medalists Sincere Seth, gave the newly promoted NPFL side a good test.

The Nigeria National League (NNL) champions played with two different sets of players in both halves with the stronger looking selection of Bidemi Abdulwahab, Usman Bello and Ado Ali starting this encounter.

Katsina, under new coach Bala Nikyu, have been putting finishing touches to their training ahead of their opening match of the new season at home against Gombe United on Sunday, January 16.

They are due to depart for their base on Tuesday.
