Eduok seals victory for Super Eagles over Ghana as Akwa Ibom Stadium is commissioned

Emem Eduok scored the only goal of the match, as Nigeria defeated Ghana 1-0 to officially open the ultra modern Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo.

The striker, who is coincidentally from Akwa Ibom, headed home a ring-wing cross from Solomon Kwambe in the first half and almost
helped himself to another in the second 45 minutes.

The stunning piece of architecture, was commissioned on Friday by President Goodluck Jonathan, who was assisted by Ghana’s John Dramani Mahama and Ivory Coast’s Alassane Ouattara.

Modelled after Johannesburg’s Soccercity and Bayern Munich’s Alianz Arena, the 30,000 seater edifice has a bullet-proof State Box, which has 70 seats.

The Super Eagles are also expected to play their final 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa at the stadium.
