Victor Moses also played for the English youth side before switching to Nigeria. These guys may come back home... Like the igbos from the north.

Every time any Nigerian names are mentioned abroad, no Northerner names come up; are they representing our country in any way other than Abuja politics?

England just won their biggest international football tournament since 1966 by beating the South Americans, Venezuela by a lone goal in the Korea under-20 world cup finals, but it is worthy to note that they achieved this feat with the help of 6 young Nigerians.

Here they are;

Sorry bro. They are all English men. No Nigerian here. Let them take the glory for their vision. If they were terrorists, we would disown as well.

The trio of Lookman and Ojo on the flanks and Solanke in the middle - with Onomah playing from behind won them the trophy. Like I said a few weeks ago: be on the look out for the lil man, Lookman, he's the future. Onomah is also very good on the ball. And Ojo plays with supreme flair. Solanke won the player of the tournament - the boy is good.

Can anyone tell what part of naij, the name, "Onomah", is from?

Anyway, this is what happens when you don't allow Yorubas play for the shitty Super Eagles and you stay populating that team with Igbo farmers. I guess that's why the team is so rubbish these days and they can't even beat shitty African teams.

Lookman is the new Alli. Ojo was destined to be the next Alli but he got lazy, though he still has time to grow. And Solanke is about to become a star. You can't watch that tournament and not see the star potentials in the guy and he's cocky as his talent.

Joshua Onomah

Though born to Nigerian parents, Joshua Onomah has represented England from the Under-16s to U-20s.
The 20-year-old plays for Tottenham.
This Joshua guy , for me is the best among all.He was outstanding in the midfield today.

Re: The 6 Nigerians Who Helped England Win The U20 World Cup(pics And Bio) by cooldood(m): 9:03pm On Jun 11, 2017
My only thought on this is simple: Every Nigerian working and toiling hard within the four corners of Nigeria has got great abilities and potentials to excel and succeed in life, unfortunately the elderly ones have created bad environment and culture for the younger ones, so life has become a struggle for majority. My major worry is that even the youths have caught the negative cultures and habits of their leaders/ bad elders who have failed the youths, instead of the youths to value themselves and form a formidable voice, they'd rather be abusing themselves along ethnic lines and towing the wrong path their bad leaders/elders left.

My advice though is this: If you have the opportunity to give your kids a greater chance to succeed and achieve their dreams, find your way out of the chaotic geographical entity referred to as Nigeria. Majority of these young boys wouldn't have been given a chance by the NFF due to nepotism nor given the right training environment.

God bless nations that create enabling environment for talents to be developed!

I've not really seen Ovie's game but Onomah has a bright future. He looks like a young Viera but he got sent off against Mexico for stamping on a player. And that's somewhat reminiscent of young Viera. Great player on the ball and super-strong.

Loool, this is ya 2nd time. I don't even know ya handle but I applaud ya bravery albeit it's suicidal. At least you're brave enough to challenge me to a fight, even if it's on the internet...unlike the other miscreants who chat shiit on here, especially the ones who claim they live in the UK. grin

Come get these hands whenever you're in London Town...these itchy knuckles need to get busy after 2-3 years of weekend boxing and muay thai training for cardio/conditioning. If you beat me or don't get knocked out cold - I owe you £500. Deal or no deal?

Regardless, naij needs to stop populating the Super Eagles with low football IQ having Igbo players. Based on what I've seen, these guys are basically farmers who're just big/athletic for nothing. Footie isn't just about raw power/skills/strength - you need high football IQ as well. That was also Jay Jay's biggest problem despite the fact that he's still my favourite naij footballer ever based on pure talent. Imagine a Jay jay with a high football IQ - he would've been one of the top-10 greatest footballers ever. And that's what lacking in Nigerian teams. Put some Yoruba players in there and mix the whole thing up.

Anyway, this my Yoruba starting 11:

Tosin Adarabioyo
Alaba
Ola Aina
Fikayo Tomori

Tosin Kehinde
Dele Alli
Ademola Lookman
Sheyi Ojo

Olufela Olomola
Dominic Solanke

4-4-2 - Lookman and Ojo are going to operate from the wings. All the players are below 21, save for Alaba. And this team should have no problem smashing the Nigerian senior football team. grin


And if you want basketball - my starting Yoruba 5:

Giannis Antetokounmpo (PG)
Semi Ojeleye (PF)
Victor Oladipo (SG)
Bam Adebayo (C)
Rasheed Sulaimon (SF)

Res (my two young bulls):

Simisola Shittu
Ayo Dosunmu

This team should smash the Nigerian basketball team to bits. I'm going to play a small line-up similar to last year's GSW, with Ojeleye playing the Draymond Green role and Sulaimon's going to play a role similar to Iggy's. grin

Get proper talents!
