Mobayo Adegboye scores Hat-trick as Xpress Payments Stroll Pass Oceanic Health in Friendly.

Adegboye scored a wonderful hat trick as Xpress Payments convincingly eased pass Oceanic Health in a friendly match on Tuesday, 30th April 2019.
The friendly which was hosted by Oceanic Health took place at the Railway Cooperation Pitch, Ebute-Meta, Lagos.


With a dazzling array of star players in their lineup, Xpress Payments started the stronger side as they pegged their opponents back in the opening twenty minutes, with Mobayo breaking the deadlock after a teasing pass from Ibrahim Saka, which allowed him fire pass the goalkeeper from a tight angle.


Buoyed by the presence of the MD/CEO, Oluwadare Owolabi and a sizeable fan base, Xpress Payments continued to dominate proceedings but couldn’t add to their tally as the first half came to an end.


The second half however brought joy for the away side as Mobayo struck a long range freekick low into the bottom corner to extend his team’s lead.


Oceanic Health never really looked threatening, and Xpress Payments dominance came to bear again after a delicious through ball from Mukaila teed up Mobayo who coolly slotted in his team’s third and completed his Hat-trick


The brilliant performance came to an end much to the delight of the away fans who were ecstatic to have seen their team destroy the opposition in such thrilling style.


Speaking on behalf of Xpress Payments, Kehinde Owolabi expressed his delight over the performance and believed there is more to do if the team are to emerge champions in the upcoming second edition of AWA Cup.


Xpress Payments will be looking forward to their next friendly game as they intensify efforts for the second edition of AWA Cup taking place later this year.
