Super Eagles defender, Shehu Abdullahi clinched yet another trophy with Cyprus side Omonia Nicosia at the expense of his former club, Anorthosis Famagusta to make it a record 17th Super Cup crowns, AOIFootball.com reports.

The former Kano Pillars defender started at right-back as the league champions opened the scoring on the 13th minute via the boot of Marko Scepovic.

Abdullahi and his teammates then won the tie 3-2 on penalties to end a nine-year wait for a Super Cup title much to the excitement of Abdullahi, who dedicated the trophy to their amazing fans.

“I am honoured to be part of this amazing achievement; it was our first Super Cup in 9 years.
