.G.O, Olukoya Rallies Team To Beat Colombia In Sunday’s Final –
History beckons as the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, MFM, Football Club of Lagos battle Colombia on Sunday in the final of the Church World Cup in Goa, India.
The Nigeria representatives are tipped to become the first Church to lift the cup as they had defeated the South Americans 3-0 in the group stage.
Kick off time for today’s match is 4pm Nigerian time. The Church World Cup is the brain child of The John Paul II Foundation For Sports.
The participants at this inaugural edition are the host India, Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Colombia, Portugal, Brazil and Uzbekistan.
Enroute the final, the enterprising MFM boys have scored 13 goals and conceded non in four games. First to fall are Sunday’s opponents, Colombia who lost 3-0, next were the boys from Egypt who also conceded two goals, Uzbekistan were battered 7-0 by the Nigerian side, while the host, India could not prevail over the Olukoya Boys, as they went down 1-0 despite playing a ten-man Nigerian side.
In the absence of his suspended strike partner, Akor Isah, who got the marching order in Thursday’s semi final clash with host, India, all eyes will be on Adekunle Adegboyega who has found the back of the net five times.
Meanwhile, the General Overseer of MFM, Dr Daniel Olukoya has charged his boys to do not only the church proud, but Nigeria and Africa by wining the competition on Sunday.
“I’m excited that MFM’s quest to reposition youths of Nigeria for God is yielding very positive results with the good news coming from India, where the Church is representing Nigeria at the Church World Cup.
“I learnt that Nigeria is the only African country remaining in the competition after Ghana and Egypt were knocked out. So the task has become herculean, it means MFM is the only Church flying Africa’s flag, and they’re condemned to bringing the cup to Africa.
“This, I’m confident is doable through prayers and hard work. I wish the boys well. I am very proud of them”, concludes the sports loving clergy.
