Niger Tornadoes Ibrahim Babawo is happy to have scored the winning goal against Rangers on Sunday but happier his side won a tough game against Rangers.
Ibrahim Babawo’s goal in the 17th minute was all Niger Tornadoes needed to defeat Enugu Rangers in a Matchday 16 fixture in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the Bako Kontagora Stadium in Minna on Sunday.
Despite a late Rangers rally, Tornadoes held on for the three points in a game Babawo described as a very difficult game.
“It was hard. Very hard for us but I’m happy we got the three points at stake because Rangers are a very tough side to play whether home or away,” he told npfl.ng after the game.
“I’m happy I scored but much happier we got the three points today (Sunday). I missed the team when I went to Egypt and I’m glad to be back to help the team.”
Ibrahim Babawo also promised that he and his teammates will keep working hard to ensure his side finish in a good position on the log and a place for a continental football next season.
“We will keep working hard to make sure we do better as the league progresses. Hopefully, we shall get a continental ticket at the end of the season.”
