FC Foyer de Lafiabougou won the trophy for the 6th edition of the Baba Cissouma Cup on Saturday July 30, 2022 by beating FC Lipton from Hamdallaye by 2 goals 0.
The Chaba pitch in Lafiabougou vibrated on Saturday evening to the rhythm of the Baba Cissouma Cup final in front of a large audience who came to watch the show. In a very committed match, FC Foyer quickly opened the scoring through its star Mohamed Sadio Kanouté (8‘). FC Lipton’s reaction is unproductive. In the second half, the two teams multiplied the chances of goals without success. It was almost at the end of the game that FC Foyer knocked out their opponent with a superb goal from Alassane Camara (68′). Final score: 2-0 for FC Foyer. The Lafiabougou team largely dominated the 70 minutes of the match (twice 35 minutes) and suddenly won their 1er Baba Cissouma Cup trophy for his very 1time final.
As rewards, the winner, FC Foyer offers the trophy, an ox and an envelope of 350,000 CFA. The finalist, FC Lipton consoles himself with a ram and the sum of 250,000 CFA.
FC Sion, ranked 3e, is doing with a game of jersey in the same way as the fair play team, AS Sébé. Mohamed Sadio Kanouté (FC Foyer) is doubly rewarded with the title of best player in the final and top scorer of the tournament (6 goals). The guest of honor, Mamoutou Touré “Bavieux” (president of Fémafoot) and the sponsor, Oumar Daff were very satisfied with the show produced by the two teams and especially with the popular mobilization.
For his part, the initiator of the competition drew up a litany of thanks. “Impatiently awaited, the final of the 6th edition of the Baba Cissouma Cup was played this Saturday, July 30 on the Chaaba field in Bamako.
