Lub-Bak Football Club of Yaba and Teslim Thunder Balogun Football Club of Ikorodu have secured tickets to play in the second round of the championship.
The first runner-up in last yearâ€™s edition, Lub-Bak, walked over Shallom FC, while Teslim Thunder Balogun massacred Excel 6-0 in their game.
Lub-Bakâ€™s Team Manager, Lookman Bakare, said heâ€™s not very comfortable that his team booked a place in the next round without kicking a ball.
â€œI would have loved my team to play our opponents instead of a walkover. We came here with the intention that we will play our first match unfortunately, our opponents did not show up,â€ he said
In his comment, Thunder Balogun Coach, Dipo Abiodun, said his team are playing Boska Cup for the first time . He boasted that his team are capable of reaching the final.
â€œMy players have shamed our critics. We are here as underdogs, but now we are become a force to reckon with as far as the competition is concerned. Our mission is to reach the final which I think is possible,â€ he said.
