Prior to the kickoff of the game on Saturday, there was a downpour that lasted for hours, leaving parts of the pitch waterlogged, thus preventing easy movement of the ball.

Speaking to reporters, Sanwo-Olu said Lagos would continue to do everything to make the state the home of the national teams, and pledged that the stadium would be covered up.

“I can tell you that there is no better home for the Super Eagles and we are actually improving sports in Lagos. We are building 10 mini stadia concurrently as we go and in the next six months, this (Teslim Balogun) stadium would have been covered up.
