FWC Champions FC abandon TSM preseason tournament

The final of the TSM preseason tournament in Kaduna has been abandoned after a reconciliation goal scored by Joel Okoro against Wikki Feeders was disallowed by the referee.

The Champions Who Care were a goal down from the first half and made frantic efforts to get back into the game but the opportunity did not come until about 7 minutes to the end of the game but it was disallowed for a goal kick call by the referee.

The net, visibly torn apart, let off the ball which led to the referee making the controversial decision despite contrary evidences from the fans and ball boys.

Players and officials of FWC Champions were therefore, forced to walk away from the pitch in protest of the disallowed goal.

The Champions Who Care had enjoyed 3 wins in four games to reach the final that was not concluded.

However, the organizers in their decision handed over the gold medal to the Bauchi-based team in the absence of the Abuja-based team.
