Kwara United Stuns Plateau United in Jos As NPFL Returns


 Kwara United, MFM football club of Lagos, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, Nasarawa United and Jigawa Golden Stars recorded vital victories on the opening day of the new 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.


League football in Nigeria has been paused since March 18th due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.


Action finally resumed today (Sunday) with clubs adhering to strict COVID-19 safety guidelines enforced by the Federal Ministry of Health and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) which was a requirement for the return of league football.


A major talking point from the opening day fixture was Kwara United’s stunning 2-0 victory over former league champions Plateau United in Jos.


Jide Fatokun scored the opener for the visitors in the 67th minute and five minutes later, former MFM forward, Michael Ohanu added to the woes of the hosts with a fine header.
