An interesting selection from Shola Ameobi…

Appearing on Premier League Today, the former Newcastle striker was asked to pick the greatest 11 players that he has played with in his career.

In his club career, Shola Ameobi also played for Stoke City, Fleetwood Town, Bolton, Notts County, Crystal Palace and Turkish club Gaziantep.

Shola was also allowed to pick seven substitutes.

Out of his 18 choices, he played with 14 of them at Newcastle United.

Some great players amongst them – Shearer, Given, Speed, Woodgate and so on.

The four non-Newcastle players are ones you might not guess straight away, if at all.

Victor Moses played alongside Shola Ameobi for Nigeria.

Whilst Wilfried Zaha was a teammate at Crystal Palace when Shola was there.

The other two are maybe the most difficult to get, John Terry and Wayne Bridge making the cut.

They played alongside Shola Ameobi in the England Under 21 side.
