BURUJ ACADEMY TACKLE IKORODU UNITED
Buruj Sports Academy will trade tackles with city-rivals and Nigeria National League side Ikorodu United FC in a friendly encounter on Wednesday.
The game, scheduled for Ikorodu United’s training ground at the Strong Tower, will come up at 4pm.
Ikorodu United, on recess after the NNL declared a break, will use the game to test new players as they prepare for the next phase of the league.
For Buruj Academy, it will serve as a stiff test of character as the team counts down to the Manchester International Cup coming up in Manchester in July.
A 21-man contingent is expected to make the UK trip which will be Buruj’s second appearance at the global tournament organized by Team Tours Direct of the UK.
