Remo Stars got the better of Enyimba FC in the opening match of the Naija Super 8 at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena on Friday.
In the game the Sky Blue showed so much resilience, they took the lead in the twenty-one minutes through a solo effort from their strike, Isaac James. The goal brought the best out of the reigning Nigerian champions as Enyimba piled pressure on the Ogun State-based side.
The effort paid off just five minutes after Remo led as a combination of efforts and good work inside the Remo vital area provided a thorough pass to Chisom Okeke, who made no mistake in slotting home to level scores.
All efforts by both sides to find the back of the net in the remaining minutes of the first half proved futile as the first forty-five minutes ended in a draw.
In the restart, they started from where they stopped as both teams went out for goals but it was Remo that got the winning goal in the 58 minutes through Ogurobigbe Seun.
