    Nigeria Professional Football League leading scorer and MFM striker, Stephen Odey has congratulated Abia Warriors' midfielder, Shedrack Asiegbu for winning the VAT Wonder Goal.

    The VAT Wonder Goal Award supported by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to create awareness for tax education attracts and also promote club-community relationship attracts a cash prize of N150, 000 for the winner with half of the money donated to a Charity to be nominated by the player within the state where the club is located. 

    Asiegbu's goal was in close contest with goals from Odey and Musa Newman from Akwa United for match day 25 in the NPFL. According to the League Management Company, a total of 731 fans voted on the website while another 361 voted on the twitter platform. 

    Asiegbu’s gaol was the favourite for 335 voters on the website and was followed by Newman who polled 209 with Odey getting the nod from 187. However, of the twitter voters, Odey ran far ahead with 184 of the 361 while  Asiegbu had 90 and Newman picked 87 of the total votes.

    Asiegbu thus polled a cumulative 425 votes to edge Odey on 371 with Newman receiving the least combined votes of 296.

    "I want to use this opportunity to say a BIG congratulations to Shedrack Asiegbu for winning the NPFL VAT Wonder Goal 6 award,"Odey wrote on social media

     "Bro I was tempted to vote for you because that your goal was simply awesome but I realized that I have to vote for myself."

    "Your goal was great and I wish to score a more brilliant goal  than that before the end of the season,once again congratulations bro."

     Asiegbu scored against league leaders, Plateau United at the Umuahia Township Stadium from a move that began with a throw-in on the right channel of Abia Warriors' attack when Yakub Hammed threw the ball to Sunday Adetunji who shielded it nicely at the edge of Plateau United's box before cushioning it to Uche Ihuarulam whose intended cross took a deflection off the back of Plateau United's Jimmy Ambrose.

    The ball then fell kindly to Asiegbu who controlled with his chest towards his left foot and struck sweetly into the top corner beyond Plateau United goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye for the first of his two goals on the day.
