Plateau United Wins 2017 Nigeria Professional Football League

Plateau United of Jos have been crowned champions of the 2017 Nigeria Professional Football League following their 2-0 win against former champions Rangers on the final matchday of the season in Jos on Saturday.
It is Plateau United’s first ever Nigerian league title in their history. Plateau United needed an outright win to guarantee the title irrespective of what MFM played away to El-Kanemi Warriors, and they deservedly took the lead in the 25th minute through Emeka Umeh.
In the 85th minute, Benjamin Turba made sure of the win by making it 2-0 to Plateau United. The win saw Plateau finish the season on 66 points and will represent Nigeria at next season’s CAF Champions League.
