    A player who was unknown last year playing in Nigeria is now a star in the making..

    There are talents in this country

  • go to a team like West Ham or Brighton in England even Aston Villa get a foot in EPL show your stuff score goals and assist in that mid table team then the sky is your limit..

    Lille is not a bad choice after all Hazard, Osimhen and etc came through the ranks there anyway God Speed Good Soldier!! VERY TALENTEND PLAYER INDEED.

    I just Hope mumu NFF include you in the next list of invited players

    Lille will be a good move. Did I hear someone say West Ham and Aston Villa? How many West Ham and Aston Villa players have gone ahead to play for Man City, Liverpool and the like. Meanwhile he doesn’t need the NFF listing him to become great in his career, and I wouldn’t blame them if they don’t as we have many good players in that role.
