Remo Stars U19 5-0 Emmydinho

Saturday 30th January, 2021

Venue: Remo Stars Stadium

Emmydinho entered this cup clash against Remo Stars fully aware of the home form of Coach Olumide’s men. Only once – against Valiant – had they lost at home this season. But Coach Ayeni Ademola’s men were hoping cup drama would ensue in the game and play out in their favor.


The reality in this game dawned on them as early as in the first minute as their goalkeeper conceded a penalty. Dada Oladimeji would step up and convert from the spot.


One quickly became two as Oladimeji was on hand to put the ball beyond the reach of the goalkeeper after a corner-kick in the 16th minute. Three minutes after, the Remo Stars U19 player would get his hattrick after a succession of passes by his teammates. Hayata Suleiman was on hand to convert after he was put through on goal down the right flank.


The home side would win both halves as Chuka put the icing on the cake with his goal, the fifth for his team, as Remo registered a resounding victory over Emmydinho who now have all the work to do going into the second leg game.


Man of the Match

Dada Oladimeji of Remo Stars U19 earned himself the Man of the Match award after scoring three goals in the space of 19 minutes, thereby setting a Creative Championship Cup record.
