Remind me, what year is the eldest they can be born?
p.s. what the hell is club brookhouse????
p.p.s Jonathan Zaccala is actually part of Serie D (amateur) team GS Arconatese and as far as I can gather has not played a single game for the senior team this year....

:rotf: Was thinking the same thing but I think there's one in Liverpool by that name (not that they are attached to Liverpool or even Everton)!

A world cup bound under-20 team with academy players and a player from a non-league club in the UK? Ok oh.

It is not unusual. Look at the plight of Kelechi Nwakii. Signed with Arsenal, loaned out to 2nd or 3rd division teams because he couldn't get work permit in England. Nigerians are not given the same opportunities as Europeans for jobs in Europe. You will have to show exceptional talent at an early age to get into the major clubs.

Is a guy like Guandozi better than Nwakili?


Also most of our top players are not part of the team. Uzoho, Chukwuze and etc. The purpose of the U20 or any age grade team is to develop players for the Senior national team. Once they are ready, they should never play for the age grade team again.

I don't get why the US is inviting Senior team players like Tim Weah, Richards, Mckennie for an U20 tournament. That makes no sense.

The coach did a poor job addressing the striking options. Some of his selections look fishy, last minute call ups from unknown places.

Nigeria can lineup in a 4-3-3 formation.

Oremadi
Aliu, Igoh, Ozoronwafor, Utin
K Michael, Ofoborh, Bashiru
Jerome Akor, Chinoso Emeka, M Effiom

:agree: Its as if they're using this tournament to promote unknown players ( probably supplied by agents),until the NFA encourage clubs to organise their own academies and design a structured independent youth system I'm not sure what else they can do?

Having said that, are there Nigerian players born in 1999 or later (apart from the SE ones like chukwueze and uzoho) that are playing in good professional clubs or their youth teams and that have been left out ? I cannot think of any off the top of my head at the moment.

Uzoho was born in 1998 not 1999.

DOB July 18 1999.

That's usually a good thing.

If web can unearth one or two to class prospects from the entire squad then it's a good day's work.

The clubless Akpan Udoh was in the AYC squad (as 3d string GK)...
But has apparently been dropped for Zaccala, who was also at the AYC camp in Abuja.

Agree. Except for Jerome Akor who was the leading scorer for the team in the AYC qualifiers...
He was then playing at Plateau United, but missed out on the AYC because of his transfer to Norway.

Did the coach even attempt to talk to Authur Okonkwo??? His inclusion would make more sense than that guy that plays in Seria Z. Maduka Okoye would have been another good option.

Meanwhile, the team will play a friendly against Red Bull Salzburg this evening (Tuesday) in Salzburg, and then its final formal friendly against Red Bull Lepzig in Germany on Friday, before heading off to Poland for the tournament on Sunday (May 19).

Unsure if these are against the U23 (or reserve) teams of both Red Bull clubs, given the season is over.

Maduka Okoye reportedly tweeted recently that he will be joining the U23 squad for the final U23 AFCON qualifiers against Sudan. We await.

Meanwhile, I think that Nigeria/NFF has been chasing after Arthur Okonkwo for a minute, and can only conclude that the effort has thus far been unsuccessful.

Jerome Akor Adam's is on loan from a Nigerian academy. He scored in their first friendly in Germany along with Effiom Maxwell and Dele Bashiru. I remember Mikel was at Lynn Oslo when he was playing at the U20s. Most players at this level are semi pros. Playing at a small club like club brookhouse doesn't mean that they are bad players.

He is on loan with option to buy.

That's right, he was at an academy in Kaduna or Kano (forgotten the name)...
