The FRSC FC of Abuja on Wednesday qualified for the round 32 of the ongoing Federation Cup after pipping Potiskum Academy of Yobe 1-0 in.

The Road Safety boys, who came from round 64, got their lone goal at the 36th minute through a clean header from Okechukwu Jonathan.

Okechukwu made no mistakes in converting a corner kick to a goal, giving his team an edge in the competition.

Earlier in the first 20 minutes of the game, the Potiskum Academy dominated the match with flawless passes and dangerous incursions at FRSC’s vital area.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Federation Cup, also known as Challenge Cup, is the main single-elimination football tournament in Nigeria.

The Federation/AIETO Cup attracts a prize of N25 million in the men’s category.

The competition debuted in 1945 as Governor’s Cup, having succeeded the War Memorial Challenge Cup that was limited to only teams in Lagos.
