Kwara United-Nasarawa Preview Afeez Nasiru plots Solid Miners’ fall in Ilorin


Kwara United impressive midfielder Afeez Nasiru has stated emphatically that himself and his teammates are ready to inflict a defeat on Nasarawa United in Ilorin.

Having won their last match at Katsina United in which Afeez Nasiru scored a 45 yards free-kick, Kwara United will aim to continue with their golden form at home against Nasarawa United on Sunday.

“Nasarawa United is a good side, but tomorrow in Ilorin, we are ready for them and victory is what we need.

“If I should get any chance to play a free-kick in the match, then definitely I will aim to score because I love Kwara United and I want to go to Europe from Ilorin,” Afeez Nasiru explained.

In history, Kwara United and Nasarawa United have played 8 games in competitive football with the Solid Miners winning 4, while the Harmony Boys have 3 wins as the remaining game ended in draw.
