Four Clubs Qualify For NPFL After NNL Playoffs by reportminds: 7:48am On Jul 23, 2019
The 20 teams to compete in the 2019-20 Nigeria Professional Football League have been decided, following Monday’s playoffs


Warri Wolves have returned to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) three seasons after their demotion from the top-flight.

Along with Akwa Starlets, Jigawa Golden Stars and Adamawa United, Wolves secured a berth at the end of the NNL playoffs in four centres on Monday.

The Seasiders took the NPFL by the storm in the 2015 season and were very close to winning the league title until they were pipped to it by Enyimba.

They gave a good account of themselves in the Caf Champions League the following year but was relegated at the end of the season following financial difficulties.

It was during the first stint with Moses Etu as chairman when the Seasiders were relegated and having returned to the same position in January this year, he masterminded their return to the top-flight.

Monday's game in Enugu against Dynamite Force was goalless at the end of the regulation time, but the Kester Ojo Osagie-led Wolves side edged their neighbours 5-3 on penalty kicks.

In Jos, NAF FC of Abuja were beaten 3-2 by Jigawa Golden Stars, while Adamawa United and Akwa Starlets picked the remaining two tickets at the expense of Road Safety and 3SC, in Makurdi and Asaba, respectively.

With this eventuality, the 20 teams to compete in the NPFL are now complete, while the season-ending Super Four to determine the actual winner of the lower league will take place from July 31 to August 3, at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.

Thank God that Delta State now have two teams in the Npfl(Delta Force of Asaba and Warri Wolves).Honestly,the Nigerian clubs i support are Enyimba and MFM(Because of Sikiru Olatubonsu and Stephen Odey when MFM was so hot during 2016/2017 season).You don't have to support a club because it's in your State.Remember that some people living in Madrid support Barcelona and likewise,London supports Man U,Manchester supports Chelsea etc.I hope for the day our league would be rated among the top 3 league in the world in terms of cash,infrastructure,management etc.I would like our style of play to change to something like the brazilian style and adding a touch of speed,i hope for the day that a team in Nigeria has players that are very skillfull from the striker to Goalkeeper that are capable of dribbling to wow the crowd and beating Madrid,Barcelona,Chelsea,Juventus etc. like 3-1/2-0.while the likes of Arsenal,Napoli,Sevilla etc. would collect 4/5-0.I suggest that clubs should give youngsters a chance.

Nigerian clubs have to give youngsters a chance,18 years old Rasford,Mbappe broke into the first team at 18.I know that if street footballer are gathered from the street,they would be capable of beating Enyimba 4-0.Also,i think musicians should be hired by the league to perform after matches,this would curb after match violence because everyone would be expecting the artist to light up their mood.The most important thing is that we need a Messiah in our league.Add yours!
