NNL: Augustine Ezeali targets NPFL promotion ticket with Ekiti United


Just as the New Nigeria National League [NNL] Season is about to commence, there are a number of players who tend to rise from obscurity to limelight. Just like Fuad Ekelejuoti, Tosin Omoleye, Nyima Nwagwa, Junior Lokosa and the likes, a certain Augustine Ezeali has set his eyes on glory.

The Ebonyi State born midfielder was among the new lads signed up by Ekiti United from Mighty Jets FC on a one year deal and is keen to see his team gets to the playoffs and get a promotion ticket.

“Am here to give in my own quota to see that the team promotes to the elite division” he told naijafootballplus.com

The former MFM FC midfielder sees his new team Ekiti United as one of the top contenders for the Nigerian National League title because of the availability of talents and promising young legs in the team.

Augustine Ezeali who has played for Nnewi United, MFM FC before moving to Mighty Jets, was among the Flying Eagles team that picked a ticket to the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup scheduled to hold in Poland.

Ekiti United are in Group B3 of the NNL alongside Nnewi United, Rovers United, Dynamite FC, and Gateway FC and they will kickstart their campaign with a visit to Gateway United in Akure on Wednesday.
