Ifeanyiubah, Kotoko friendly called off

The tune-up game between Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, FC Ifeanyiubah and Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko, has been cancelled.

The Ghanaian Premier League club were due to play hosts to their Nigerian counterparts at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Wednesday before the game was cancelled following “a rough patch at the last minute,” according to a statement on Kotoko’s official website.

FC Ifeanyiubah, who are on a pre-season tour to Ghana as preparation for the Nigerian top-flight which kicks off on February 21, suffered a 0-2 defeat to Accra Hearts of Oak in their first of the two friendly matches on their tour.

Hearts of Oak mastered the Nigerian club with Samudeen Ibrahim and Thomas Abbey scoring the goals.

FC Ifeanyiubah begin their 2015/16 season in the Nigerian top-flight on the road when they face Giwa FC.
