League summary:




Nigeria have won FIFA U-17 World Cup in fantastic style. They have really great attacking players in their squad such as Kelechi Iheanacho, Musa Yahaya, Taiwo Awoniyi, Success Isaac. But there is also a fantastic right back Musa Muhammed – a true captain and leader of the team. Musa is maybe not the greatest technical footballer of all time, but he is a real workhorse with superb determination, bravery and heart for the game. Several English clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea already have asked after him. It is now just a matter of time before he comes to Europe.



“Muhammed is a born leader.”

(Taiwo Awoniyi – Nigeria U-17 striker)
