Remo Stars cruise to victory in Lagos friendly
Remo Stars fought back from a goal deficit to beat Nigerian National League (NNL) rivals First Bank FC, 2-1 in a friendly match on Wednesday.
The encounter at the Agege Stadium was a return fixture between both teams after their first outing at the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw.
Six minutes into the game on Wednesday morning, Sodiq Ismail turned the ball into the back of his own net to give First Bank FC a 1-0.
The Sky Blues Stars responded positively and won a penalty two minutes later which Agbeko Morgan converted to draw them levelled.
A minute before the half hour-mark, Ndukwe FearGod fired Remo Stars ahead with what turned out to be the match-winning goal.
With the NNL still on break, Remo Stars are yet to taste defeat in their last three friendly games, settling for back-to-back draws against Shooting Stars and ABS FC Ilorin.
