The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has lamented the ouster of the Nigerian Under-23 by the Germans at the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympics, describing the Dream Team as gallant losers.
Obi Ogunwusi urged them not to allow the loss to weigh them down as they battle for the bronze against Honduras.
The monarch disclosed this while endorsing Ojaja Football Competition, a grassroots soccer tourney instituted in his name by CFAS Sport towards football development at the grassroots.
Oba Ogunwusi described football as a means of engaging the youths and moulding their future.
According to Rev. Oluwaferanmi Olanrewaju, the tournament, with all states from the South West participating, will lead to selection of players as nucleus of Ooni FC, which would be registered to play in the league.
