Al-Safa, Beirut Academy, Eleven Football Futbol Pro and sports stars teams opened their career in the quarter-finals of the Lebanese Women’s Football Championship with a deserved victory in the first round of the competition, which will be played in the single-stage league system.
Some of the participating teams have strengthened their ranks with foreign women players to compete for the title, as the tournament system allows for two foreigners to be contracted for each team, one on the field and the other on reserve seats.
Al-Safa was the first contracting with foreigners, as he strengthened his ranks with the Jordanian national team, Luna Al-Masry and Ghanaian Alice Kossi. Eleven Football Football and sports stars are also bringing in players from Ghana.
On the other hand, Al-Ahly Brothers, Alia and the Beirut Academy, maintained their local formation, preferring to compete in the quarter-finals and compete for the title without foreign players.
At Tire Stadium, Al-Safa defeated South Stars 5-0 (first half 0-0).
The goals of the match were scored by Angie Saad, Alice Kusi (3) and Aya Jamal Al-Din. Al-Safa finished the first stage of the championship with five wins, a draw and a loss.
