The Nigerian trio of Moses Odubajo, Chuba Akpom and Sone Aluko have secured promotion back to the English Premier League with Hull City after their 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday at Wembley.
The Tigers were relegated from the top flight last season but they have made a swift comeback to the elite division with their slim win.
The classiest of finishes from Mohamed Diame was rightly enough to earn promotion at the end of a season which for several reasons had threatened to unravel.
Consistent speculation surrounded the future of manager Steve Bruce, a poor run of form in the second half of the season and concerns surrounding their seriously-ill owner Assem Allam had all threatened their ambitions.
Diame’s goal ensured it was Wednesday’s hearts which were broken, however, cruelly ending the unlikeliest of challenges for promotion after a 17-year absence from the top flight and ensuring Hull, with the expected income that comes with reaching the Premier League, can consider themselves £170million richer.
