Rivers United Stun Villarreal 1-0

Nigerian League runners up Rivers United, on Wednesday defeated Villarreal Team B 1-0 in their first game of their Spanish pre-season Tour.

Guy Kuemian’s header helped the Nigerian side claim a victory at the Ciudad Deportiva Valenciana. The Ivorian marksman sneaked onto the far post to head Bernard Ovoke’s corner kick past the Villarreal goal keeper, Nico Campuzano, in the 24th minute.

Kuemian was later replaced due to a knock and  his replacement, Elvis Wike, should have doubled the Pride of Rivers’ advantage in stoppage time.

He however dragged his effort wide from close range after he was played in by Asamoah Godbless.

United had missed chances earlier in the game and could have easily added to their tally but Emeka Ogbugh had two efforts wasted.
