Buruj Sports Academy on Wednesday held the Lagos Selected side to a pulsating 0-0 draw in a friendly match at the Agege Stadium.

The match, a preparatory exhibition designed to help either team get in shape for upcoming assignments, turned out to be more much more feisty than expected with each side giving as much as they got for the entire duration of the game.
An obviously elated CEO of Buruj Sports Academy Dr Salahudeen Waheed expressed satisfaction with the performance of both sides but hailed his side for an improved display as compared to their outing against 36 Lions in their previous game.
”I’m happy with our performance and I say kudos to the players for listening to their coaches and upping their game against their opponents. It shows that the coaches understood the reason why we could only play out a 1-1 draw with 36 Lions and worked on the mistakes. Today we didn’t score but I’m very happy with this performance. It was a spectacle,” he said.
For Buruj, who have three players already selected and invited for a trial in the United Kingdom to showcase their talent for an opportunity to get signed and gain scholarship, it was another opportunity to test some of the players that would be included in the final squad for its tour of the UK.
Meanwhile Buruj is also set to participate at the Easter Opening International Youth Tournament in North-East Brabant Holland, through the Academy’s partnership with Team Tours Direct Ltd of Swansea-based sports business tycoon Terry O’Neill.
The Holland Cup is a two-day international youth football tournament. It has established itself as one of the largest tournaments in Holland.
