UWCL: Uchechi at the double as Minsk books second round ticket


Nigerian contingents in the fold of Minsk had reasons to celebrate as the club booked their ticket to the next round of the UEFA Women’s Champions League on Sunday.

A brace from Uchechi Sunday was the highlight of the day as the reigning Belarus champions thrashed Vllaznia in Sarajevo.

Uchechi proved more accurate once the action got under way, netting a first-half double as Minsk demonstrated their threat on the counter-attack.

The Nigerian put her team ahead less than 15 minutes into match, with Hanna Pilipenka
netting the second five minutes to the half-hour mark.

Uchechi added a third late in the 27th minute with a crisp finish.

Ishola Tawa lasted the entire match duration, Onome Ebi replaced Gift Otuwe in the second half, while Sunday was benched for the entire match duration.
