Scorer of the only goal in Sunday’s final game of the NNPC/Shell cup Uzodinma Emmanuel is in cloud nine after helping his side to win the 2013 edition of the competition.

Purple Grand College, Enugu won the 2013 All Nigeria Secondary Schools Football Competition after a 1-0 win over Government Secondary School Abuja in the final played on Sunday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

The difference

Emmanuel’s second half goal via penalty made the difference in an interesting final.

The striker expressed his joy to have helped his Enugu side to the victory.

-I’m so glad we won the trophy, he told futaa.com
