Rufai, Ikpeba, Others In Action As Keshi Is Buried

Former Nigerian internationals, Peter Rufai and Victor Ikepba, on Thursday joined others in a novelty match as the late legendary footballer, Stephen Keshi, was buried amid tears in his hometown in Edo state.

The match, which was organized by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the Edo State Football Association and the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, also featured ex-Super Eagles players, including Mutiu Adepoju, Austin Eguavoen and Uche Okechukwu.

The former Nigerian internationals, Rufai, Adepoju, Eguavoen, Ikepba, Okechukwu and Keshi were part of the Nigerian squad that lifted the African Nations Cup trophy in 1994.

The match ended 1-1 at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, where Keshi played many matches for the New Nigeria Bank FC.
