Nigeria’s ex-international Dejo Fayemi dies at 83 in Ibadan

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos
One of the nation’s first generation footballers, Pa Dejo Fayemi has passed on at the age of 83 in his Ibadan, Oyo State residence.
Sources told BLACKFACE on Monday that he died peacefully in his sleep on Friday night.
The deceased held the record of being the first Nigerian to score in a World Cup qualifying match, a feat he achieved when his 50th minute strike reduced the tally to 2-1 in an eventual 4-1 loss to the Black Stars of Ghana in Accra on August 28, 1960.
Fayemi scored again in the return leg match in Lagos that ended 2-2.
Nigeria’s first scorer in the World Cup qualifying series died in Ibadan, the same sprawling city where RashidI Yekini, the first Nigerian scorer at the World Cup, also died.
Fayemi, an inside left player for the Ibadan Lions in the late 1950s made his debut for Nigeria in 1959 in an Olympic Games qualifying match against Ghana.
During his active playing days, Fayemi had 15 appearances for the national team and scored seven goals before venturing to Britain to further his studies.
