Nana, Focal Point In Quarter Finals Of Channels National Kids Cup
The two teams qualified on Monday in Day Two of the group stage of the championship.
Group A action kicked off in Day Two proceedings of the Channels National Kids Cup championship, with Lagos team, National Primary School hoping to bounce back after losing their opening game against Nasarawa.
Ali Abubakar scored a brace to give the Lagos team a comfortable 4-1 victory over Amaise Central Primary school from Abia State.
In Group B, Uncle Bayus was called up to replace Niger. They lost their first game to Kogi and in the second against St. James Government School, Osun State, they put up a good fight but suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat.
In Group C, Focal Point Primary School, Kwara had fun beating Muhammed Kabir School from Kaduna to book a place in the quarter-finals.
Group D games produced the major talking points from Day Two.
The game between Premier Primary School, Anambra and Arinze Primary School from Edo was a cracker.
Edo was leading 3-0 and when they blinked, Anambra started fighting back.
The game ended 3-3.
Nana Primary School from Delta State got in late but didn’t struggle to get into the groove.
They defeated Anambra 5-0 in the first game and with a 4-0 win over Anwairudeen School from Ogun, they picked a slot in the last eight.
With five places in the quarter-finals still up for grabs, Day Three will definitely be action-packed and one that will give another chance to the future stars of Nigerian football.
