Eunisell Boot: Joint top scorers Nwankwo, Atshimene receive N3.8m

Eunisell, sponsors of the prestigious Eunisell Boot award for the highest goal scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League, has announced Nasarawa United’s Silas Nwankwo and Akwa United’s Charles Atshimene as joint winners of the award for the 2020/21 season.

The pair will get N3.8m each for scoring 19 goals and also receive the coveted Eunisell Boot. Each goal scored during the season has a premium value of N200,000 set by Eunisell to inspire players to score more goals.

It is the second time Eunisell will celebrate joint winners after Mfon Udoh and Ibrahim Sunusi, in 2019.

Speaking on the decision to honour both players, Group Managing Director of Eunisell Limited, Chika Ikenga said, “The Eunisell Boot aims to bring more attention to the Nigerian league and raise the profile. Now is the time to grow our league. The talents, market and opportunity are there. Football is an ecosystem that contributes significantly to our economy.”

Both players scored 19 goals each during the just-concluded season in a battle that went down to the wire on the last day when they both played on the road.

Interestingly, they were tied on 18 goals before the last match-day.

Atshimene scored his 19th goal in a 1-1 draw at Lobi Stars, while Nwankwo responded with a late goal in additional time at Abia Warriors, where his team was defeated 3-1.
