Ivorian Marksman, Guy Kuemian's early goal in Rivers United FC first match of Spanish pre-season tour handed the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) club victory at Villarreal Team B and made them outstanding compare to other clubs from NPFL.

Guy Kuemian, making the list of starters in the starting line-up to play against the Villarreal Team B, struck in classy and sublime way 24th minutes into the encounter to secure a second 1 - 0 win inside three days. The last victory being a 1 - 0 win against Wikki Tourists in the final matchday of 2016/2017 NPFL Super 4 Competition held at Rangers International Stadium in Enugu State, Nigeria. Rivers United FC were crowned Champions after securing the top position in the 2016/2017 NPFL Super 4 log. 

Guy Kuemian has been a key man in the attacking section of the Stanley Eguma tutored team ever since he netted his first goal for the club in March, 2016. He has demonstrated his ability to score in various match days, and his instinct for scoring goals is something to write home about.

Guy Kuemian headed home the decisive goal in the Rivers United's triumph over Villarreal Team B in the friendly game at Ciudad Deportiva Valenciana on Wednesday, 14th December, 2016.

He rushed onto the far post to head home Bernard Ovoke’s corner kick past the Villarreal Team B goal keeper, Nico Campuzano in the 24th minute.

Kuemian had to hobble off with a quarter hour still to play with a suspected muscular injury and his replacement, Elvis Wike should have doubled the Pride of Rivers’ advantage in stoppage time. He however dragged his effort wide from close range after he was played in by Asamoah Godbless.

The Nigerian South South based team had plenty of chances earlier in the game and could have easily added to their tally but Emeka Ogbugh had two efforts which hit the back of the net but were not recorded due to infringements in the rules of the game.

The Spaniards in the 88th minutes of the match nearly got the much fought for the equalising goal, Leandro’s strike flew inches wide off the Rivers United FC goal keeper, Sunday Rotimi’s left hand post.

Rivers United FC will continue in their Madrid's pre-season tour with other friendly matches to be played against different Segunda B clubs including Levante Union Deportiva 11 and Club Deportivo Alcoyano.

The organisers of the tour have made it clear that the Rivers State sponsored club side will attend training sessions of a La Liga club (both the senior and youth teams training sessions of the club). This will be closely followed by a guided tour to the storied home of reigning European champions, Real Madrid, that is, the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. There are other packages for the technical crew of Rivers United FC during the pre-season tour. 

The Rivers United FC contingent to Spain is due back in Nigeria on Thursday, 22nd December, 2016. Rivers United FC together with Rangers International FC will represent Nigeria in the 2017 CAF Champions League.
