This defender was highly rated, but we havent heard about him in a minute.

Good question. Too many of our U17 stars fall by the wayside. Lukman Zakari should be competing for a shirt in this team.

Just because someone was a U17 "star" does not mean they will be a star in the future

The problem with a lot of youth players is that desperation to leave Nigeria causes some to go on trial from one obscure Euro club to another eventually they get lost in football wilderness and disappear. A lot of these guys do not realize that they are better of playing in Nigerian for a yr or two developing themselves, because nowadays Nigerian players get signed directly from NPFL.

But that does not mean they cannot move on to bigger and better things. Players who have gone from the U17 team to have successful European careers include:

Nwankwo Kanu
Wilson Oruma
Celestine Babayaro
Kelechi Iheanacho
Ogenyi Onazi
Kenneth Omeruo
Mikel Obi
Francis Uzoho

I am in favour of players leaving as soon as they can because that way they get exposed to good coaching early. The longer you stay in the Nigerian league, the more likely you are to develop bad and irreversible habits.
