‘WE ARE READY FOR SUPER CUP’: OLOYEDE BOASTS AFTER FRIENDLY WITH SYNERGY!
The much publicised friendly game between Buruj Sports Academy and Synergy Ultimate FC ended 3-2 in favour of Synergy on Wednesday afternoon inside Agege stadium.
The match which was organised to test the level of match-fitness of Buruj boys as they step up preparations for their upcoming trip to the United Kingdom to participate in the 2016 Welsh International Super Cup holding in Cardiff, Wales.
It was Buruj academy who drew the first blood in the 6th minute of the highly thrilling encounter with a well taken corner goal off the head of Wale Onanuga, before their opponents equalise in the 34th minute.
The young Buruj side who gave a good account of themselves throughout the duration and offered some glimpses of what they are up to, raised into the lead courtesy of a fine goal off the boot of Aremu Ismaila in the 36th minute before the more experienced Synergy boys even the scores early in the second half and went ahead in the dying minutes to score their winning goal.
Speaking after the game, the head coach of Buruj Sports Academy, Taiwo Oloyede, expressed deep satisfaction over what he saw of his boys and vowed to correct all the noticeable lapses before the team’s departure to the United Kingdom on August 1st.
“It was a good game taking into account the quality of the match we played and the standard of opposition we came up against.”
“We are gradually overcoming the problem of goal-scoring we had before because in our last game before this, we scored 5 goals and conceded one while today and against a tougher opposition like Synergy, we scored two good goals, we could have won it outrightly but we lost due to inexperience on the part of that. Like I said, we will take care of our errors and we will be ready for the Super Cup,” he boasted.
