SANWO-OLU, FIFA PRESIDENT GRACE FOOTBALL PITCH AS AISHA BUHARI CUP KICKS OFF IN LAGOS

•Nigeria’s Super Falcons Trash Mali’s Team 2-0

Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial nerve centre, became the cynosure of the global soccer lenses on Wednesday, as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu was joined by the President of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), Gianni Infantino, to attend the opening round of the maiden Aisha Buhari Women Cup.

Nigeria’s Super Falcons played against Mali’s Les Aiglonnes in the international tournament hosted by the Lagos State Government at Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan.

President of Confederation of African Football (CAF), Mr. Patrice Motsepe, Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, and top FIFA officials joined in Infantino’s entourage to the stadium.

Also, Lagos First Lady, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu and members of the Lagos State’s Executive Council stormed the stadium for the tournament.
The International friendly tournament, sponsored by MTN Nigeria and supported by Lagos State Government, was initiated to promote female football in Africa, gender equality and draw attention to development issues affecting women.

The first half of the opening match ended with a draw. However, 83 minutes into the second half, Super Falcons’ forward, Gift Monday, scored a goal, leaving the Malian side disoriented.

At 91 minutes into the added time, Monday again netted another goal, giving the Falcons victory over their opponents.

Six nations are participating in the contest, which will draw to a close on September 21. Other participants include South Africa, Morocco, Ghana, and Cameroon.

The tournament continues tomorrow (Thursday) with Cameroon’s Les Lionnes Indomptables slugging it out against Moroccan Atlas Lionesses.

Highlights.

Two late goals by Monday Gift off two assists by Asisat Oshoala gave Nigeria a 2-0 victory over Mali. However, the Super Falcons looked disjointed in the first half.

Where is Aisha? Is she in the other room? I wonder why they named the tournament after herand she can not even deem it fit to attend

The tournament is being organised by the Lagos State Government and the NFF as part of their agreement. It was simply named in honour of Aisha Buhari, but that does not mean that she's the organiser. It's the same as having a Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt, even though it was not built by, neither is it owned by Yakubu Gowon.

If dis all u have to say then I can conclude that u really have nothing to say....

Some of u really r kids or empty brain with nothing reasonable to comment but jump on every section saying jagons, that pitch am seeing is something to even be proud of, 1 of d three stadiums own by lagos state, mind u dis is not teslim stadium super eagles played 2weeks ago and dis is not english premiership, some stadium that host nations cup sef r not as beautiful as dis, so u r actually expecting a stadium like Wembley?

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the size of that stadium. Stadiums of that size are regularly used for women's football. See pictures below for examples.

1) Estadi Johan Cruyff, Barcelona Femeni's new stadium. It is also the host of the Joan Gamper Tournament.

2) Mini Estadi, Barcelona Femeni's former stadium.

3) Meadow Park Stadium (aka Boreham Wood), home of Arsenal Ladies.
