Fidelity Bank has emerged champions of the 2019 Nigeria Bankers Games. The top lender also made it a double by emerging best in the overall medals table at the end of the games.
To become champions, Fidelity Bank vanquished a hard-fighting United Bank for Africa (UBA) in a nerve-wracking final in Lagos on Sunday, December 2, that had everybody sitting on the edge of their seats.
The Nnamdi Okonkwo boys drew the first blood, converting from a well-taken throw-in. The lead was however short lived as the Tony Elumelu boys benefited from a defensive mix-up to score the equaliser. From then on, it became a ding-dong affair with neither of the teams giving anything away. That was the situation till the end of regulation time.
Then the dreaded penalty shoot-out! Fidelity Bank players kept their nerves and scored all their five kicks to take away with the coveted cup for the fourth time.
