Last year’s finalists Rozie FC of Aboru will battle Crystal of Ijeshatedo in one of the semi-final matches of the Abesan Cup at the Keda pitch in Ipaja, Lagos, on Saturday, as they aim to emerge champions of the highly-rated grassroots football competition.
The second semifinal is between Golden Boys of Iyana Ipaja and debutants Junioru United of Ijegun.
Both games would be preceded by a novelty match between organisers of the event led by its coordinator, TayoAdeyemo and coaches and team managers of participating teams.
The novelty match, which started in 2010, is meant to foster a healthy relationship between organisers and team owners.
To reach this stage, Golden Boys edged out Global 3-0 in the quarter-final, while United beat defending champions Onigando Football Academy 2-1.
