Sporting Lagos Academy has strengthened its squad with the loan signing of players from Real Sapphire FC and Broad City, ahead of the Gothia Cup tournament in Sweden.

Real Sapphire’s right winger Akinfenwa Musa and midfielder Bidemi Amole joined the Sweden-bound squad. Musa impressed last season with over 10 goals and assists, earning multiple MOTM awards in The Creative Championship while Bidemi Alore was instrumental in midfield, known for his exceptional vision and ability to find passes behind defenders.

Meanwhile, Babatunde Akomolede, a solid center-back, and Hanif Sanusi, a skilled left winger, join from Broad City, bringing their impressive form to the team. The duo has collectively earned over five MOTM awards in the TCC League this season, showcasing their remarkable talent.

Coach Shola Adegun’s team for the tournament was announced before the end of last month and will be competing in the Boys U17 category, starting on July 14th, 2024.

The Lagos-based side has been drawn into Group 5, with their inaugural match scheduled against Sweden’s IFK Norrkoping.
