Akwa United became the first team to clinch a semi-final ticket at the ongoing Naija Super 8 tournament.

The Promise Keepers qualified following a 1-0 victory against Rivers United in a cagey clash at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Lagos, on Monday.

The result sent Rivers United out of the competition after losing their opening two matches in Group B.

The Porthacourt-based team paid for their lack of creativity despite being in control throughout most of the first half.


Lukman Adefemi came close to breaking the deadlock but could not direct his shot on target from a tight angle.

Akwa United players came out better in the second half and their dominance paid off.

Uche Collins put Akwa ahead in the 58th minute with a well-taken goal.


In the other group game, Lobi Stars and Yobe Desert Stars played out a goalless draw.

The match produced few goal-scoring chances as most of the action took place in the middle of the park.

With the results, Akwa United sit top of Group B with six points. Lobi Stars are second with four points while Yobe Desert Stars are third with one point.

On Tuesday, Sporting Lagos will face Remo Stars while Katsina United play Enyimba International later in the day.
