    Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Niger Tornadoes Football Club and Nationwide League One (NLO) side, FC Ebedei of Sagamu, will be seeking a bright start to the fourth edition of Gold Cup Pre-Season Tournament when they face off in the tourney’s official opener Friday morning (8.am) at Otunba Dipo Dina International Stadium, Ijebu Ode.

    "I'm aware FC Ebedei is a very good side, with young boys and very tricky. They have very good players so we have to be careful, but I have told my players they must be prepared to give their best. My players are determined to do the job," the merchant tactician said.
    Ebedei coach Tunde Oladeinde, stated that they are going to give Tornadoes a run for their money as they will be going all out for an upset and winning the contest.

    In other fixtures fixed for Friday evening, Enyimba International FC of Aba, will battle Lobi Stars FC of Makurdi at pitch A (4.pm), while Sunshine Stars International FC of Akure, will trade tackle with mobile Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club of Lagos at pitch B (4.pm).
