One night in March, my phone rang. It was a Nigerian number … it was Stephen Keshi, the Nigerian National Team manager. I was sweating as soon as he introduced himself. I wanted him to say the words I had thought about for so long. He spoke for awhile about how he wasn’t totally familiar with me, but he liked how I played.

Then he said it: “I would like to invite you to be a Super Eagle.”

Those words … they meant so much to me. It meant validation for every step of my footballing journey. It meant happiness for my family. Most of all, it meant an opportunity to go to Nigeria.

And that … that was everything to me



We miss you and your fearless approach to football .................O' Great BIG BOSS :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs: :thumbs: .............

A heck of a story by Leon. Wow, this is why when people talk as if racism has suddenly evaporated, you have to do a double take. We still have a long way to go. Great story and welcome to the place you are loved!!!
I was referring to this experience a few months ago in a thread about the 'Oyibo Wall', when, responding to The Yeyeman, I wrote:

"I think the whole experience of having 180m people embrace you - in fact, CLAIM you - as their own after a lifetime living in the white west is something you and I can only imagine (I'm assuming you are not mixed race yourself).
I think it was Balogun that got really emotional on one occasion and spoke about it."

[quote="Cellular"]Lovely story, did he say how much Keshi asked him to pay?

I guess that is what the Keshi haters would love to hear?[/quote]
