Lodgexpress CEO Ejimafor Itumo praised Gombe United home debutant Chijioke Alaekwe after their win on matchday two over defending champions, Enyimba.
Alaekwe scored his first goal for the club in the 2-0 triumph.
The match was closely contested, with both teams displaying determination and skill on the field. However, it was Chijioke Alaekwe who stole the show with his outstanding performance. His moment of glory came just minutes before the halftime whistle when he headed home from a freekick, opening the scoreline for the Savannah Scorpions.
“Chijioke Alaekwe’s performance this afternoon was nothing short of exceptional. Ejimafor Itumo reacted. His goal showcased his aerial prowess and timing, and it was a crucial moment in the match. He was undoubtedly the best player on the field today.
“Alaekwe’s home debut has given Gombe United fans a glimpse of what’s to come. If he continues to deliver performances like this, he could be a game-changer for the team. It’s an exciting prospect for the club and its supporters.
“He can also drive in from the flank, cut in and strike from any angle. He’s such a clever footballer. I think he’s really prepared for this season. You just look at him, I think he he can finish off the campaign with a bag of goals on his shoulder.”
