How old is this guy really ? I really like this player, but I just don't believe the boy is 18. He has a receeding hairline, and that moustache isn't helping him either. I really hope he is young, but lets not kid ourselves and be honest here, how old is this guy really ?

I watched the Croatia game yesterday for the first time and while I don't like accusing people without proof I found myself cringing at some of the things I saw and heard. At one point the commentator said Nigeria had the youngest squad in the tournament. I cringed. When I saw Anyanwu close up. I cringed. When I saw 18 year old Musa. I cringed. When Uwaifor came in and i took one look at him...my Lord! did I cring at the 19 year old.

i dont believe he is 18 either but neither do i believe he is 25 talkless of 30. the guy only started playing proffesional football last yr. prior to that na football academy im dey. if he were an age cheat, we would have known abt him and heard stories abt him loong time ago. my guess..he is prolly between 20-22

Are these reliable sources of his background or what ? Could he have been hiding out all these years in some village practising and working on his skills.

does that really make any sense??? if he were a talented baller, wouldnt he seek to get noticed by some club to make money instead of tapping leda under the bridge??? again if the guy were an obvious age cheat, people would have spoken out by now. it would also be easy to get news reports of his exploits dating back 5-6yrs ago. thus far all the reports conserning him start from 2010. google is your friend.

Ahmed Musa is supposed to be younger than Kule pictured right. Kule is avery good American born naija soccer player who went to naija to try out for the u-17 national team but came back and said he had no chance because the men were too old

Why is he trying out for the U-17 team if he's older than Musa who will turn 19 in October? Do you also know Kule is not a Nigerian name? I suspect you're confused and out you're making up stories.

Kule went 2 years ago not just now. I know the family and his father, Babatunde is a diehard SE fan.

so Kunle has a baby face while Musa does not. so effing what? does not change the fact that Musa is not an age cheat. again where are the news reports from 5-6yrs ago linked to Musa? can a 30 yr old man run the way Musa runs? u guys need to think for a second.

the funny thing is that the so called saints ala Brazil, Argentina, Spain etc all cheat. we know it, FIFA knows it. in fact looking thru this competition, the only teams that are using real kids are Guatamala and Costa Rica...which is why they are being hammared by their opponents.

You took the word from my mouth. In as much as I don`t support using men for kids competetion, the truth is the South Americans are not saints,they cheat too.

Don't they all get scanned using MRI to check on growth plates? If that is the case, they couldn't be probably more than 2-3 years past their listed age.

It is folks like you that compel people to defend these guys.... with a weak half arsed argument about telling someone's age based on picture evidence. Ahmed Musa could be 50 years old... but him looking older than Kunle Banjo has no bearing on the argument.

You should have posted a picture of Kunle and asked folks to guess his age.

I have seen Kunle play, bobo is good and has a very high football IQ... his pop encouraged him to play lots of ball with Africans to get hardened/toughened which in turn helped his game (because at some point he was more American in his approach to soccer). ...love his skill set...he could take players on and is a good shooter... but the point remains that you can't tell a player's age by mere looking at him. I say this using myself and my siblings as an example. As a 16 year old freshman LB/DE at VT my brother could have passed for a 20 year old. Easily!


Last I checked, Ahmed Musa is rightfully playing on the Senior Eagles team... No?

I am not concerned with whether or not Brazil and Argentina cheat, I am concerned with us fooling ourselves with hot young prospects who fizzle out before their career even begins. Do Brazil and ARgentina have players whose careers suddenly end at 26 or 27. Why does Osaze who is 30 look younger and have more energy than most of our players, please I am not accusing anybody of anything here, I just think we need to look ourselves in the mirror here and address a true problem which is detrimental to our national team football. I am not accusing Ahmed Musa, I am merely raising a legitimate question and would like to know other people's thoughts and inputs.

Kunle does not have a baby face, he has the face of an 19 year old. Below is a pic of Joseph Gyau and his team mates on the Hoffenheim reserves, they are all older than Musa.
