Nigeria National League side 36 Lion FC bow out of this year’s LAGOS F.A Cup following a 1-0 tussle in the hands of former F. A cup runner-up Smart City FC in quarter final Final game held at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium.


We made a bright start to the game, putting Smart City under immense pressure in an intense tactical interplay at first half of the match.

We controlled the midfield and dictated the tune of the game, creating several scoring opportunities but Smart City Defenders refused to yield as the first half ended goalless.

Match restarted in the second half, as 36 Lion grew in confidence on Smart City FC like a wounded lion, as they became more fluid in attack, but all efforts to open scoring were botched by resolute defending with former runner-up side.

Smart City open scoring through Nura Ismail in the 72nd minutes.

However, 36 Lion create chances to break in to restore parity , but failed to bury their glorious opportunities.
