Rangers International F.C’ target to help solve its seeming problem in attack, Elijah Ani, grabbed a brace in a 3-0 spanking of a friendly fixture with Aba based, Gleam City Football Academy inside the main bowl of Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium, Thursday.
Power playing Elijah, was set up by Ifeanyi Okoro on 7 minutes to shield out his marker and score while two minutes later, he volleyed home a Timothy Simon’ inviting cross to silence the coach Sunday Chukwu tutored side.
Shedrack Asiegbu benefited from a defensive mix-up from the opponent to put his name on the score sheet on 34 minutes.
The second half witnessed a much improved performance from the Academy side as they soaked up all that was thrown at them even as Chinonso Eziekwe, Chiamaka Madu, Tony Eliagwu and Christian Nnaji all came close to increasing the tally.
Elijah Ani once featured for Wikki Tourists F.C where he scored a wonder goal against Yobe Desert Stars F.C in the 2018 season and was in Warri Wolves line up since the start of this term.
