Nigerian-born Michael Abiodun inspired KMH All Stars with an early goal and an assist as the unbeaten side cruised past Japanese All Stars 4-1 to enter the semi-finals of the ISI Palm KMH Super Cup as winners of Group A at the KMH Stadium on Tuesday night.
Having won both their group matches, KMH had already sealed a knockout place but they kept pushing to extend the winning momentum.
By the eighth minute KMH had taken the lead through Abiodun, who took his personal tally to four goals in three matches.
Fellow Nigerian Nduka Chukwu doubled the advantage 10 minutes later. Well before half time Takuya made it 3-0, threatening a thrashing for the East Asians.
A sudden cloudburst brought some relief for the Japanese, who even sensed a comeback when Daichi Inoue pulled a goal back in the 68th minute.
However, Heng Sokly rammed in KMH’s fourth goal minutes before regulation time to send Japanese packing.
