Rivers Angel Are 2014 Women’s Federation Cup Champions

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Rivers Angel are the 2014 Women Federation Cup winners on Sunday.

The team managed by Edwin Okon defeated Sunshine Queens 2-0 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, with goals from Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala and Stella Mbachu who has now retired from international football.

Oshoala lashed unto the ball after Sunshine Queens keeper Funke Okewole’s howler in the 66th minute.

The MVP of the 2014 AWC in Namibia(Oshoala) couldn’t make it a brace two minutes later. Aminat Yakubu’s pinpoint cross was great but Oshoala had ran a yard faster, her swivelling effort going over the bar from close range.

Stella Mbachu made it two with four minutes to full time when she side-footed a loose ball from Oshoala.

Rivers Angel captain Evelyn Nwabuoku’s powerful shot had hit the cross bar earlier but despite missing some glit-edge chances, the Port-Harcourt side was the better side, with only the duo of Yetunde Aluko and Tawa Ishola the real threats going forward for Sunshine.
