Ahead of Sunday's Nigerian Federation Cup men's final between FC IfeanyiUbah and Nasarawa United, Completesportsnigeria.com's ADEBOYE AMOSU raises five important posers…
WHICH SIDE WILL REPEAT AKWA UNITED'S FEAT?
Both FC IfeanyiUbah and Nasarawa United will be playing in the final of the Federation Cup for the first time and they will be keen on replicating holders Akwa United's feat of winning the trophy in their first final appearance.
Who achieves that will be known at the end of action on Sunday.
WILL GBADEBO, BASHIR BE SECOND TIME LUCKY?
Nasarawa United duo, Samson Gbadebo and Abdulrahman Bahir, were part of the Lobi Stars side that lost 2-1 against Akwa United last year.
They have another chance for redemption this year when the Solid Miners face the Anambra Warriors on Sunday.
CAN NASARAWA UNITED END NORTHERN TEAMS' FEDERATION CUP DROUGHT?
Teams from the southern part of the country have won the last five editions of the Federation Cup with s,outh-eastern clubs Heartland and Enyimba winning four trophies and south-south Akwa United one.
The last northern side to win the competition was Kaduna United who shocked Enyimba in the final of the 2010 edition.
Lobi Stars of Makurdi have competed in two finals in the last two years and lost both.
Nasarawa United will hope to end the drought at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Sunday.
WILL FC IFEANYIUBAH COPE WITH EZENWA'S ABSENCE?
The Anambra Warriors will be without their first choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa who is cup tied for this game.
The Nigeria international joined the Nnewi-based outfit in mid-season and is ineligible to feature in the game.
CAN NASARAWA UNITED COACH KABIRU DOGO FURTHER IMPROVE HIS PROFILE?
Kabiru Dogo is one of the young coaches making waves in the domestic scene at the moment.
He has done remarkably well since taking over from Mohammed Babaganaru two years ago and leading the modest side to victory in this final clash will no doubt further enhance his rising profile.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
