Wikki Tourists’ Nafiu Kabuga scores first hattrick of the 2017-18 NPFL season
Nafiu Kabuga has scored the first hattrick of the 2017-18 Nigeria Professional Football League season in Wikki Tourists 3-0 win in their matchday 12 clash against Rivers United at the New Jos Stadium on Sunday.
This time last season we also had just one hattrick, Stephen Odey’s three goals in MFM FC 4-0 matchday three trashing of Lobi was all we had. Although the likes of Rueben Bala, Ibrahim Alhassan, Tony Okpotu joined as the game progressed.
Wikki Tourists recorded one of the biggest wins in NPFL on matchday 12 with their convincing win in Jos on Sunday.
The combination of Abba Umar and Nafiu Kabuga proved key Wikki Tourists and too strong for Rivers United as they stepped their games in the second to lead the home team.
Nafiu Kabuga puts Wikki Tourists in front from the spot kick in the 55th minute, three minutes later he made it two after converting Abba Umar pass.
Again, Abba Umar created another goal for Nafiu Kabuga who complete his hat-trick and Wikki’s remarkable second-half display. There were 32 minutes (55-87th) between Nafiu Kabuga first and last goal at New Jos stadium on Sunday.
