Tony Wilson and Ali Siaka’s two goals each and a goal each from Jamilu Rilwanu and Rasaq Alao gave Kogi Utd FC a convincing 6-0 victory over Lazio Football Academy on Monday.

It was one of tune-up games for Kogi Utd in preparing for the new National League season.

The new line-up ensured the coach meant well as they opened the interesting encounter with a 2min tap-in goal from Jamilu Rilwanu.

Ali Siaka blasted in a shot from Sanusi Pedro’s cross to make it 2-0 in the 23rd minutes, and Tony Wilson’s 40th minutes goal took the game beyond the reach of Lazio, to finish the 1st half with 3-0 score line.

3 minutes into second half, Wilson scored his 2nd goal of the game, 4th for Kogi United.

A long range shot from Rasaq Alao went past Lazio keeper in the 53rd minutes to make 5-0, and Ali Siaka also scored his second goal of the match, and last for Kogi United to make it 6-0 against the boys from Lagos.

The result means the Wada Boys are yet to lose a match since they begin with preparation for the upcoming National League season.

However, they will face a strong test on Monday afternoon in another Grade-A friendly with Sunshine Stars of Akure at Dipo Dina Stadium, Ijebu-Ode by 4pm.
