Match Report: 1 – 1 Draw vs Legend FC

We begun our June campaign with #Matchday4 against Legend Football Club, a grassroots club based in Lagos. Legend wereto score in the 20th minute through a well-struck direct free kick that left Goalkeeper Opeyemi Bamgbose standing. The scores were leveled shortly after the second half resumed with Rufai Suleiman getting his second goal of the season in a show of power and resilience in the 50th minute. The game had open chances at either end but the scoreline remained the same. 1-1 Draw.
