Su­per Falcons cap­tain Asisat Oshoala will on Tues­day lead Team Nige­rian Foot­ballers against a Team Naija Celebri­ties side at the Cam­pos mini sta­dium, La­gos.

Ear­lier, young fe­male foot­ballers from Oshoala’s foun­da­tion would take on a se­lected side of play­ers from the Nige­ria Women’s Pro­fes­sional League.

Both events are spon­sored by Rev Mother Es­ther Ajayi, a sports phillantro­pist and the Gen­eral Overseer of Love of Christ Gen­er­a­tion Church, Uk

Stars ex­pected at the event are ex-su­per Ea­gles striker Obafemi Martins, Nige­rian leg­end Nwankwo kanu and Ea­gles cap­tain Ahmed Musa.

To­golese striker of Nige­rian de­scent Em­manuel Ade­bayor is also ex­pected to play a part in the game.

En­ter­tain­ment stars Ali Baba, Yaw , AY Makun, Nedu , Broda Shaggi , Obe­sere and Idow­est have con­firmed their at­ten­dance for the event

Oshoala thanked Es­ther Ajayi for sup­port­ing her pet project, the Asisat Oshoala Foun­da­tion and the yearly Asisat Oshoala Foot­bal­l4­girls Clinic.

The clinic helps girls in La­gos se­condary schools to achieve their dreams of en­gag­ing in foot­ball as a ca­reer.

“I must com­mend my mother (Ajayi), my men­tor, for stand­ing by me every time I call on her for sup­port. Her re­sponse to my calls has al­ways been tremen­dous. “She has done a lot for us in Nige­rian women’s foot­ball, we can­not but give ku­dos to her for the sup­port,” Oshoala said.
