Our left back....


Nigerian websites say he's 20 years old. His date of birth on Enyimba's website is 02/02/1996 and in CAF's record for CHAN it is 11/11/1999.

Why in 2018 are we still having issues with record keeping?

I was also suspicious about him.

Unfortunately this remains the order of the day for us. Players and their agents should learn to trust in their abilities and not have to rely on changing their ages to bag contracts abroad. Ikouwem is talented enough that he doesn't have to resort to doing this.

That is the type of crap that should not be happening.

The best thing to do is to ignore him.

The essential thing is the need to stop all this business with the age discrepancies. If you are good enough, you are good enough. If you are crap, no amount of chopping your age will help you get anywhere (unless your ambition is to play in Vietnam or some other God forsaken league).

...don't condone the errors, but is CHAN an age based tournament?

Bully, I am a huge fan of Stanley Amuzie, he is the most talented LB we have and I was ecstatic when he signed for Sampdoria as I believed he would improve on his defensive lapses.
I was disappointed when he did not manage to play a single match for Sampdoria, not even a cup match before he was loaned to Lugano, where he struggled for game time.
I was surprised when Lugano made his loan a permanent deal. The ball is in Amuzie's court and he needs to start fulfilling his potentials this season. The SE LB position is Stanley's if he buckles up.
I chat with someone who is close to Stanley and he said the boy has been advised to keep off social media and concentrate on his football.
I salivate at the thought of Ebuehi at RB and Amuzie at LB and the crosses they will be whipping in from both flanks.

Based on what I saw from Amuzie defensively during the olympics, I'm not surprised he didn't get to play for Sampdoria. He's great going forward, however, the defensive side of his game needs a lot of work. Hope he can improve at Lugano as he has a lot of potential.

Can mistakes not happen? And when caught shouldn’t they be corrected? I’d understand if we are saying the boy has two different passports with different ages, but going off what someone else wrote on a website is not fair to them. I don’t know nor claim to know this guys age but come on...

I remember the abuse the likes of NFA CHAIRMAN who is actively involved in Nigerian football gets here when he points out the widespread abuses in our system ...: I have given up on trying to reason with willful Ignoramuses who will defend all manner of idiocy under false guise of patriotism :curse:

I know Ikouwem's family in Uyo. He's actually 20. Watch out for interviews with his Primary School headmistress and his secondary school games master... :taunt:

Why do you assume that the original age listed on the website is incorrect?

Why would I assume its correct though? Its a website not an official document, and the fact that they've updated it now shows just as much, that it can be changed willy nilly and so shouldn't be used in any official capacity...if you tell me the age on his passport changed or he's carrying two passports with different ages then I can get behind that fight...remember the NFF website once had Martins DOB as Garba Lawal's w/ a year of 1973, which caused issues with his club even led to chants at Newcastle of 23 or 29. Yet we see he's still playing till today and doing well so definitely wasn't Lawal's age mate...

Can’t blame any player for website birthdate discrepancy until you find out the source of each birthdate. Heck, Naija officials officially named a player Mikel even though no be him name be dat!
