FC Ebedei beat Tornadoes in Gold Cup opener

Nigeria Nationwide League one club FC Ebedei shocked Niger Tornadoes 1-0 in the opening game of the pre- season Gold Cup tournament in Ijebu Ode on Friday.

Gideon Joel scored the winning goal in the first half of the encounter played at the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium.

The score line would have been more comprehensive if Ebedei FC converted a penalty awarded to them in the 71st minute when a Niger Tornadoes defender handled the ball in the box.

In Friday’s two other remaining fixtures, MFM FC of Lagos will face Sunshine Stars, while Enyimba will keep a date with Lobi Stars.
