In a condolence message signed by the Edo Sports Commission boss, Olympian Yusuf Alli, the late world Cup winner, will greatly be missed by the Edo Sports family and Bendel Insurance FC.


“We ‘have lost a great personality; football tactician and a proud son of Edo land who had used his talents and spirit of patriotism to bring honour to Edo state and Nigeria as a whole.


“He proudly won Nigeria’s first Under 17 FIFA world cup, “China 85″ edition and also will be remembered for his iconic free kick winning goal that earned Bendel Insurance FC a

3-2 win over Mighty Jets of Jos in Ibadan to win the Challenge Cup in 1972″.


” We are saddened by the demise of veteran Coach Sebastian Brodricks Imasuen, but we take solace in the fact that he wrote his name in Gold in the service to his father’s land.

We commiserate with his immediate family and pray God to grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.


We also pray God to grant him eternal rest. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.” Alli Concluded.


Late coach Brodricks Imasuen was the first Nigerian and African coach to win a FIFA world cup. He led his school boys

to win the inaugural FIFA Kodak world cup for Nigeria when the then Baby Eaglets defeated the then West Germany 2-0 in China. #
