Non-league side, Inter Lagos FC dumps Sporting Lagos FC

Posted : 29 March 2024

Sporting Lagos FC was dumped out of the Lagos FA Cup on Thursday after a dismal first-half performance at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena.

After narrowly escaping defeat at the hands of Box 2 Box FC on Tuesday, where the Noisy Lagosians won via penalty shootouts, they fell to a better side: Inter Lagos.

Coach Paul Offor started with a strong XI, with Christian Nwoke in goal, but they were unable to curtail the attacking strength of Inter Lagos.

The Pride of Lagos took the lead in the 11th minute courtesy of Tony Obia, who superbly finished a pass from Abubakar Taheer from the edge of the box.

With the early lead, Inter Lagos kept attacking for more, and it paid off in the 45th minute. This time, Taheer got a well-deserved goal. Obia, the goalscorer, combined with the left winger from his half of the pitch with a long pass to score the second.

Dismayed by the result at halftime, Offor brought in Junior Lokosa, Henry Ndedi, and Odinaka Okoro to remedy the situation, yet they were unable to score.

Gabriel Ezema tutored the side, stood resilient in defense to protect their lead, and was forceful in attack seeking to increase the tally, but the scoreline remained the same.

Inter Lagos will now play in the Federation Cup but will have a battle for honors against either Ikorodu City FC or First Bank FC in the final of the FA Cup.
