Rabiu Ali reaches NPFL, Pillars Milestone


Kano Pillars captain Rabiu Ali reached a milestone in the NPFL on Sunday when he scored in his side’s 1-1 draw against Adamawa United.

Ali, who is in his 9th season with Pillars, netted the game’s opening goal, as the four-time champions got the new season underway.


The midfielder is the longest serving player at Pillars and scored in his ninth consecutive season.


At 40 years and 3 months, he also becomes the oldest player to score in the NPFL and for one club side since the availability of stats in the League.


Ali joined Pillars in 2011 as a 31 year-old and has won three league titles.


He has also represented the Super Eagles at the 2014 and 2018 African Nations Championship, a tournament for players based exclusively in their home leagues.
