Nigeria Calls Shola & Ex-NUFC Teammate
Shola looked a great prospect when leading the line for the England Under 21s but as we all know he has had a very strange career of ups and downs that never then put him i the frame for a full England cap.
Now though Shola has been called up for the Nigeria squad, having already been cleared for the possibility despite those appearances for young England.
This is a warm up game in advance of Nigeria’s participation in the African Cup of Nations early next year.
While obviously pleased for the big man, if Shola ended up making that African Nations squad it wouldn’t do us any favour in terms of striker cover.
This is definitely one of those ‘you couldn’t make it ups’!
