The nation’s industrial and economic capital, Lagos was at its most vivacious on Saturday as the Nigeria football fraternity celebrated with Super Eagles and SS Lazio of Italy midfielder Eddy Ogenyi Onazi, who got married to his heart-throb, Sandra Osagioduwa Ogunsuyi.

About a dozen Super Eagles’ players attended the impressive ceremony at the Faith Tabernacle in Lekki, with NFF President Amaju Melvin Pinnick, NFF 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi and Chairman of Technical Committee, Chris Green, also in attendance.

The Super Eagles’ line –up included assistant Captain Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo, Kenneth Omeruo, John Ogu, Moses Simon, Brown Ideye, Anthony Ujah, Raheem Lawal, Obinna Nsofor and Sunday Mba.

The reception at the Ruby Gardens was preceded by a one –hour church service at Faith Tabernacle, at which the couple were exhorted to show love and understanding to each other at all times, and to value God’s word above things of the world.

Pinnick had earlier in the day, alongside Sports Minister Solomon Dalung, NFF Deputy General Secretary Emmanuel Ikpeme, Director of Finance Dadid Atabo and assistant technical directors Abdulrafiu Yusuf and Siji Lagunju, attended the eighth day fidau prayer for departed NFF Technical Director, Coach Shuaibu Amodu, in Surulere, Lagos.
