STORY OF DELE ALAMPASU,THE GOLDEN EAGLETS KEEPER WHO WAS ONCE A PURE-WATER SELLER

Dele AlampasuDele AlampasuDele Alampasu, the 16yr old Golden Eaglet keeper rose above his critics to deliver an immeasurable performance at the just concluded FIFA U-17 World cup where he emerged the golden glove winner for conceding just 5goals and delivering quite a number of saves particularly in the final against Mexico.
Dele initially faced enough criticism for his poor performance against Sweden where he conceded 3 cheap goals which were directly his faults. He was dubbed the weakest link in the already promising Golden Eaglet squad but went on to keep 4 clean sheets and conceded just 1 goal in the remaining fixtures. He’s indeed a starlet and a role model.
The Nigerian born Keeper of Togolese decent (Parents are said to be immigrants from Togo according to a reliable source) was a young lad who sells pure-water around Ogba area in Lagos. According to our source, Dele lived the life of every struggling Nigerian on the streets. He sells pure water after school for his parents and whenever he can, he joins up with some boys who play street football. His road to success began when he was playing his street soccer before he was snapped up to an academy. His performance was then rewarded as he was selected to be the first choice goalie for the Golden Eaglets.
The source also said so many of the players were from average or struggling homes who played football on the streets. He singled out another player Obasi as someone he’s played with at a place called kara, a local surburb just around the Ogun river bridge. he was excited how their perseverance had brought about success.
What an inspiring story. Who would think a pure water seller would become a hero today. We’re proud of Dele and the Eaglets. All thanks to coach Manu Garba and his crew who narrowed their search to the grassroot academies, something that has been lacking for years as players were picked on merit.
Their performance was superb that the world wondered if Africans really had such World beaters. History was made! four World cup trophies, a feat Brazil is yet to match or England the founders of football. Now the world celebrate promising stars like Kelechi Iheanaho, Musa Yahaya, Musa Muhammad, Dele Alampasu, and the rest.
We say congrats once again to the GOLDEN Eaglets for truly standing by their name and bringing us back the GOLD medal and lest we forget, Congrats to coach Manu Garba, he was an outstanding figure as well.

Re: Lists Of Yoruba Names And Their English Meaning. by macof(m): 2:19pm On Oct 02, 2014
fem30: Please, what is the meaning of AJANAKU?

It's a name given to elephant Hunters or descendants of great elephant Hunters

Like Ogidan is to lion hunters

Ajanaku itself is an Oriki to Elephants, but I don't know the real meaning

Typical example of someone who's been brainwashed since birth to be proud of wearing a foreign name for no reason.

Some names are not limited by gender. So attaching gender is not so relevant grin

Answering you is a waste of time looking at the kind of person you are on this forum.
Stop giving yourself headache over a thread that is over over a year old.
