In spite of multiple proclamations on CE that none of these pboys will be signed by foreign clubs after the U17 WC failure.

Exclusive – Hammarby Signs Nigeria Akinkunmi Amoo, Invite Two Other Nigerian U17 Players, One Cameroonian For Trials

Swedish side Hammarby have completed the signing of Nigeria U17 wing forward Akinkunmi Amoo and will officially hand him a professional contract contract when he turns 18, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.

Amoo was one of the few bright sparks in the Nigeria U17 team that crashed out of the round of 16 at the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup. He impressed with his all round play and ability to score goals.

He was linked with several clubs but after a video conversation with legendary Sweden forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is a part of the owners of the team, the soon to be 18 year old agreed to join the team.

To that effect the Technical Director of the team was in Nigeria last week and talks have been concluded on his transfer. Furthermore he picked three other players during his brief stay in Nigeria where he watched a mini tournament organised for him to scout for players.

Alfred Olatomi Olaniyan who was controversially dropped from the U17 team for the World Cup is among the players selected by Mikeael Hjenberg who is the Chief Scout/Recruiting Officer of the club for what they describe as a mini trial per the players letter of invitation.

Saviour Johnson Isaac who was also surprisingly dropped from the Nigeria U17 team ‎is also among the players picked for the trip to Sweden which is scheduled to last from the 6th of May to the 27th of May 2020.

Cameroonian import Junior Landry ‎Nkoum Polla was also selected for the trip to Sweden after impressing. All the three players for the trials are from same club Sidos FC as Akinkunmi Amoo who has agreed a deal in principle already.

I wish I could remember the forumers here that virtually swore that these boys were so "talentless" and "brainless" that they wouldn't go anywhere in life.
There was even an ethnic dimension to the ridicule and the agbayas on the forum came out in full venomous abuse.
Wey dem now? :lol:

Amoo was one of the few bright spots on that team. Could become a very good playmaker if he get the proper training.

Aside from Tijani, Amoo and the 2 GKs, I don't expect much from the players from this set.

The fact only 2 players from the team have moved to Europe and the 2 that moved went to Austria and Sweden may say something about the quality of the team. That being said Tijani and Amoo may go on to have better careers than the likes of Success, the Nwakali brothers, and Awoniyi who signed for bigger teams early in their careers. Other players in the team may also develop well too.
