Nyima Nwagua happy to return to Kano Pillars’ lineup after Vietnam’s trial


Kano Pillars striker Nyima Nwagua has revealed his desire to get back to his best after returning from trial in Vietnam and was instrumental in his team’s 2 – 0 home win against Abia Warriors in a Nigeria Professional League match on Wednesday in Kano.



Nwagua at the start of the season was unavailable for Pillars after he was invited for trials in the Southeast Asian country in a deal that fell through which saw the lanky forward returning to his parent club in Nigeria.


Two Pillars veteran players Gambo Mohammed and Rabiu Ali scored two late goals in the 71st and 86th minute to hand the Mai Musa Gida boys the win which sees them move to 5th on the table leapfrogging Heartland FC despite playing fewer games.


Reacting to the win and his performance in the match, Nwagua praised the boys for the character they showed which ensured that they got all three points. “It feels good to be back in NPFL action. Good fight from the boys as we defeated Abia Warriors 2-0.”


The striker also noted that he is gradually adjusting to being back in the country and hopes he’ll soon resume scoring for his team to make the fans happy.
