The report quoted is rubbish. Completely different from what transpired on the pitch last night.

For the first goal, Lookman smartly nicked infront of a ball watching defender to pounce on a loose ball and rifle it with his left foot.

For the second goal he nutmegged Xhaka just outside the box and curved a powerful shot into the bottom left corner

For the third goal, he received the ball and took on the defender outsmarting him with a leg over, thereby creating space for himself and ended in with a wonderful left footed shot into the top right hand corner

It's a huge showcase for him. I saw the match,all his three goals were world class especially the second one. Many top clubs will be on him this summer especially Chelsea and man u.
But the obsession of the UK media over him is what I don't understand. BBC wrote, London born Nigeria international, The mirror wrote ,formal Charlton youth player,they totally omitted Nigeria. E dey pain them say dem no poach am like they did to Solanke and Saka undecided
He played for England youths teams starting from the U15 to the U21, he waited anxiously for a call up from Southgate which never came until he decided to switch nationality to Nigeria in 2022.
So it's not a matter of him not being poached but him not considered good enough for the Three Lions because of his poor showings with Everton, Leipzig had to send him out on loan to Fulham and Leicester City twice.

Don't mind them.

He played for the England youth teams and he was phenomenal.

At senior level, he was overlooked.

Switched allegiance and they suddenly remembered him after breaking records in the final.

Atalanta & Ademola Lookman massacred Bayer Leverkusen.....grin grin.
I knew Atalanta were capable, I study their tactics.
They love to play a team like this that open up well and attack e g Liverpool, Leverkusen, Marseille.
They will give you the possession but remain compact only for them to give you a reactive and decisive football.
You may have all the possession but that shot on goal and other important decisive moments matter to them a lot.
I just dey laugh 😄😃 when average poll from several polls give them just over 25% chance of winning.
Una don see now, dey don silent una...not just 1 but 3 goals that's tactical master class.
With our "home boy" Ademola Lookman setting a record as the first player to score a hat-trick (3 goals) in a Europa League final, that's so much joy for me and others like me.

Europa League Final 2023/2024 Season.

You are a very good analyst, you poured out my mind, that Atlanta team are fire, most especially if Ademola is there...

Watching yesterday's match, I wonder how Bayern got to the final... It was just ticki-tacka they were playing... Disrupt their one-two and they start running around like headless chicken...

There was nothing really special about the Bayern team, maybe their style of playing is new to their league, that's why they won... I'm sure by next season, other teams would have known how to handle them
