Ikorodu City got the league underway in a fine fashion with a 3-1 victory over Sagamu based FC Ebedei at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan courtesy of a brace from the captain Tosin Oyedokun after Olubode Hassan opened the scoring for our first goal of the 2022/23 league season.


The game started in dominant fashion for Ikorodu City, controlling possession and getting to dangerous spaces with the crosses from Ayomide Cole, Alex and Waliu not finding Kenechukwu in the box as FC Ebedei threatened on the attack a couple of times but with no attempt or clear chance at goal.

The game then sparked into life when Kenechukwu used his height to rob the defender of a cross from Waliu but his shot was blocked by the defender. Hassan was on hand to pick the loose ball, round the onrushing goalkeeper Cosmos before scoring the opener on the half hour mark.

Ayomide Cole was having a bad day and was substituted for Taheer Abubarkar who quickly changed the attack, twice piercing through the defense and winning a penalty after three mins of coming one as our lead was doubled by captain Tosin Oyedokun.

The visitors responded quickly, scoring two minutes later in the 37th minute after a corner wasn’t well defended, handing Dayo Osho the the chance to half the deficit for FC Ebedei and it went that way into the break.

The second half resumed with much more command for Ikorodu City, making it difficult for the visitors to get a hold of the ball. 

Three points were sealed in the 75th minute after a lively Chinedu turned away from a defender and found Tosin in space on the left. The skipper drove into the box with a good first touch and fired hard into the bottom left corner of Cosmos who was glued to his spot.
