Secretary of Lagos State Football Association, LSFA, Okikiposu Akeem remained optimistic that Team Lagos would qualify for the football event for both male and female categories in the ongoing southwest zonal elimination for the national sports festival.
Akeem disclosed this after the Team Lagos football team arrived in Osun state yesterday for zonal elimination.
The secretary was impressed with the spirits of the players in the camp and boasted that no southwest state can deny them qualification from the football event for both male and female categories.
“I am confident that our football team and other team sports would do well. I particularly have confidence in our football team because I watched their training and friendly matches played recently and I am impressed. So there is nothing I can say than to say Team Lagos are unstoppable and they would qualify from the football event,” he said.
The Lagos FA scribe quickly reminded the players not to be complacent against their opponents saying that anything short of victory would be a disappointment to the football fans in the state.
He however admonished the coaching crew of both categories to remain focused and steadfast and ensure that Lagos triumphed over their opponents.
Lagos would meet the winners between Oyo and Ogun on Thursday afternoon while the same things applied to Lagos female football team.
