The Nile Rovers (Nile University’s football team) took on the FutMina Transformers in the opening game of Group F in the ongoing Higher Institution Football League on July 9, 2019. However, the match, which was played at the Nile University campus, did not have a happy ending for the hosts (and its supporters) as they were defeated by the impressive visitors. The result leaves the Nile Rovers bottom of the group (with two games to play) and little room for error in their quest to qualify for the round of 16.
