Who is this guy?

Fabrizio Romano: Arsenal wants to sign Kasımpaşa's 22-year-old Nigerian forward, Atto Abbas, in January. They have been following the young talent closely for several months.

Atto Abbas: 'Attacking midfield and attacker are the positions that I am good at.

Players develop differently and it is difficult to predict accurately how good a player will be when the player is so young given medical, maturity, psychological and several other issues. In my view, the certainty of a player reaching top level is quite difficult to predict until the player is close to 20 in many cases.

That height get as ee be for an outfield footballer. Agility, speed go be questions if you ask me. Hopefully, he does not grow much taller.

In any case, I really do not think any player born in Europe will have Nigeria as #1 option if the player is good enough to play for the country where he resides. This is nothing against Nigeria, specifically. Instead, it simply does not make sense it in the terms of human comfort and socialization. If a kid is born in Nigeria to German parents and has grown up around other Nigerian kids, that kid is likely to rank Nigeria ahead of Germany.

I don't think a German kid born and raised in Nigeria will choose Nigeria over Germany.

I remember one Italian striker who was born and raised in Australia but played for Italy

He had a proper Aussie accent too

Then we (Nigeria) have a bigger problem!! No way will a kid born to Nigerian parents in Europe or United States choose to platy for Nigeria ahead of those countries except in a case where the kid feels he may not get an opportunity with those countries. We have seen that case repeatedly and, in my view, not surprising about that. It is all about comfort level.

If you now state that a kid who has socialized a lot with Nigerian kids in Nigeria will instead choose to play for a European country of his parents' birth, then we even have a bigger problem at hand. I hope you are wrong because that would appear to go against the grain of socialization.

That is the core issue right there - but remember the kid may rightly but also wrongly feel he has "no opportunity".

In countries that have an embarrassment of riches (eg, imagine Maradona and Messi being of the same generation) a very talented kid could feel he will make the pick but eventually doesn't, while another might feel he won't make it but does. Add to that the varying rates at which kids develop (late bloomers, early peakers etc) then its to a degree a guessing game.
You win some, you lose some but you don't give up the fight for quality. No-one is going to give you any brownie points for 'gentlemanly behaviour' In the war arena that is the World Cup or even AFCON.
For what? :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

This is why the NFF's 'early strike' policy should not be rubbished. It should be encouraged. We are mostly talking about young players on the rise here, not seasoned 'rejects' like Sola Ameobi and Danny Shittu.

I really don't know why there is such a reluctance for Nigerians to join in this dog-eat-dog world that is the modern game today. I think it is hypocritical tbh - especially coming from those of us that have emigrated out to the west with our higher skills.

We have no problem hiring out our skills and services to the highest global bidder for the benefit of their societies and to the absolute detriment of ours, yet we whinge and whine and shed crocodile tears about ''reaping where we did not sow'' when recruiting bona fide diaspora Nigerians for a game of football!
Who or what is impacting more negatively on Nigeria - the unrelenting 'brain drain' or the 20-30 odd foreign born footballers that over time get invited to play for the SE?

It's a ridiculous argument to be having in 2020 and as far as I am concerned it is driven by a mixed bag of naivety, ego, racism, personality politics, identity ambiguities and a misplaced sense of patriotism.

Go for the very best available wherever they might be, and while you're at it, fix the local league to be the best it can be.
They are not mutually exclusive. :idea:

It's in poor taste to refer to ex-internationals Sola Ameobi and Danny Shittu as seasoned 'rejects'

With regards to the NFF early 'early strike' policy. The truth of the matter is any player like Tammy, Saka etc will choose England, Germany, France etc first. Those who have no hope of playing England, Germany, France etc will choose the SE.

Even those who have little hope of playing for the county of their birth i.e. Sam Billings Denmark, rejected the SE offer.

Invest in your country by building and developing your football infrastructure and youth teams and your league.

I'm only using the derogatory language of you and your "ilks'.
How come you never objected to such a description before now?
Or is your problem with the word 'seasoned'?

Story. Time will surely prove you naysayers wrong.
We want the best eligible players from anywhere in the world, not a quota.
I'd take a 'no hoper' like Eze or Lookman over a quota'd Adamessi or Gbaradonna any day.

So why are you not doing all that?
Because you have seen Tammy, Tomori and Billings?
Ever heard of two things not being mutually exclusive?

Big Danny Shittu and the other traitor whom I shall not name were the most seasoned of rejects.

I really like Aiyegun. He's fast, direct and strong on the ball, and has an eye for a goal. Eager to see how he will fare in a stronger league when the time comes.

That boy has real potential. He's skillful,powerful and likely faster than Musa was at his prime. I see him more as a potential wingback or maybe even a RB. Hope it works out.
