Rivers United secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Katsina United in matchday 2 of the Nigeria topflight division last Sunday.
A brace from Ishaq Kayode and a strike from Chijioke Akuneto, was all that was needed to separate the contest.
But ace midfielder, Morice Chukwu, was the centre of attraction for the home side all through the game. He generally ran Rivers United’s offense from deep, somewhat usurping Chijioke Akuneto from his role in this game.
He did not get on the scoresheet, but had a really fantastic game.
Though Morice might not have directly contributed to a goal, he was one of the most creative players on the pitch on Sunday. In his stay on the pitch, the deep-lying playmaker made as many as 4 key passes all while boasting a passing rate of 85 percent.
Nearly set up Nwagua Nyima for a goal as well. Such a delight to watch when he is in full flow.
Their next game comes up on Wednesday, a trip to Aba for a clash with Enyimba.
