Aisha Buhari Cup: Morocco Take on Mali

After yesterday’s rest day, hostilities will resume today in the ongoing Aisha Buhari Six-nation Invitational Tournament in Lagos with Morocco’s Atlas Lionesses and the Femelle Aiglons of Mali setting the stage.

A brilliant goal by Fatima Tagnaout 13 minutes from time separated Cameroon and Morocco in the second match of the maiden edition of Aisha Buhari Cup at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos last Thursday.

Both Lionesses were matched in all aspects for large swathes of the game, with the North Africans showing both power and athleticism on similar scale as can be found in sub-Saharan teams.

But in Mali, the North Africans will find a hard nut to crack.

Forget they lost their first game to hosts Nigeria. The Malians have the capacity to turn the table this evening.
