Former Barcelona B forward Ezekiel Bassey scored twice as Akwa United thumped Uchecaria 7-1 in a pre season friendly on Friday afternoon.

Bassey opened the scoring after 11 minutes, before doubling the lead for Promise Keepers.

Prosper Igwe pulled one back for Uchecaria with a long range looping effort.

Samson Gbadebo, Jean Efala, Etboy Akpan, Evans Ogbonda, Samson Gbadebo, Charles Okafor, Dare Ojo, Seth Mayi, Adamu Yakubu, Ubong Friday and David Onovo were given minutes by coach Kennedy Boboye.

Onovo finished off a fine team move for United’s third goal of the afternoon.

Yakubu and Onovo bagged two quick fire goals as the homers continued to cruise. The latter’s strike was a beauty with the ball hitting the inside of the upright and making its way in.

In the 83rd minute, Wasiu Alalade gorgeously tapped home in Ogbonda’s immaculate cross as the Promise Keepers turned the tie to tutorial class.

There was still time for Samuel Amadi to beautifully curl in from the edge of the box with his dangerous left foot.
