Shola and his former teammate at Kwara United, Alalade Wasiu, reunited during their NPFL clash, but the 23-year-old Lobi Stars midfielder and his colleagues managed to steal the vital points.

The lone goal from Francis Odinaka was all the Lobi Stars needed to edge out Shola and his teammates in the keenly contested NPFL clash at the New Jos Stadium on Sunday.

Barely two minutes into the second half of the match, the midfielder scored a long-range effort to separate both teams and further solidify the Makurdi-based team’s playoff hopes.Shola of Niger Tornadoes excited to see old friend despite defeat vs Lobi Stars

So happy to see you once again, my brother Alalade Wasiu.” – Shola wrote.

Despite the away defeat, Shola claimed it was a “very good game” at the New Jos Stadium and appreciated God for shielding him from any injuries.

A very good game today at jos, we thank God Almighty for injury-free.” – he wrote

With two games remaining against Sunshine Stars and Bayelsa United, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder and his Niger Tornadoes team will now be focused on a successful end to the season.
