The fireworks continue at the annual COPA Lagos International Beach Soccer Tournament on Saturday with Nigeria’s Supersand Eagles ready to trample all over their counterparts from Lebanon at the Eko Atlantic Beach.
In Friday’s opener to the tournament, Kebbi Beach Soccer team lost 9-11 to Arsenal Stars, while Giddy Sharks defeated Pepsi Academy 6-3.
The Supersand Eagles edged Morocco 7-6 and Spain sent Lebanon packing 7-3.
On Saturday, the Supersand Eagles, one of Africa’s two flag-bearers at this year’s FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in The Bahamas, will take on Lebanon at 7.15pm, before tackling Spain at the same time on Sunday.
The Supersand Eagles won the first three editions of the COPA Lagos International Beach Soccer Tournament, but finished as runners-up to Cote d’Ivoire in 2015. Last year, the COPA Lagos International Beach Soccer Tournament was not full –fledged, as it held under the banner of the CAF Beach Soccer Cup of Nations at the same venue.
