Efe Sodje, who is spearheading the club’s involvement in the match, said: “Since news broke of the tragedy only a few miles from the club’s ground, everyone at the club has been talking about what happened and thinking about the victims and their families. We want to help wherever we can so we have agreed to get involved in the football match.”
