PREVIEW: VFC VS 36 LION FC

All you need to know as we play 36 Lion FC in the Round of 16 of the Lagos FA Cup.


*WHERE AND WHEN*

VFC will continue her quest for glory against 36 Lion FC on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at the Alade Stadium, Lagos State by 13.15 GMT+1


*ABOUT LAGOS FA CUP 2020/21*


The 2020/21 Lagos FA Cup was put on hold last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and it is set to be completed this year with 84 teams including Vandrezzer FC confirmed registered to participate for the finals.

 

The competition is in a knockout format which means there has to be a winner in a given fixture to qualify into the next round.


*VANDREZZER FC*

Despite a missed penalty in the second half against Jo Sportyne FC, Saviour Isaac's early strike was enough to get us through to the last 16. 


With more players expected to return for this fixture, VFC is hoping for a spot among the eight best teams in Lagos as we continue to prepare for the new season.


*THE OPPONENT*

36 Lion FC defeated MFM Feeders 2-1 in the round of 32 to book a place in the last 16 and will be looking to pull a shocker against VFC.


The club will likely feature in the Nigeria National League next season and could prove a difficult opponent.


*TEAM NEWS*

Centre back, Opara Abraham and forward Somtochukwu Abraham are back in the squad for Coach Tony Bolus. Saviour who was the match winner against Jo Sportyne will continue in midfield while fullback Samuel Edoho will once again lead the team this afternoon. 

The new signings are also available for action today.
