MFM FC made club history winning their first continental game in the 1-0 victory against Real Bamako at the Agege Stadium on Wednesday, and the club also raised the bar when they fielded a 16-year-old in the preliminary round match.
Abayomi Lawal made his CAF Champions League debut, coming off the bench in the second-half.
At 16 years, Lawal may very well be the youngest Nigerian outfield player to feature in a club continental game.
The youngster replaced Abiodun Ayinde on 55 minutes and was crucial in the build up to the goal that sealed victory for the Olukoya Boys.
