Poland 2019: Arrival of foreign-based players not a threat to Home-based star, Oladoye Adewale

Despite the invitations and influx of foreign based players in the Flying Eagles Camp in Germany, their arrivals are no threat to the chances of Oladoye Adewale, a home based midfielder in making the cut when the final list for World Cup is released later today.

As Nigeria’s Flying Eagles coach Paul Aigbogun set to name his final lists for the forthcoming FIFA U20 World Cup, little known Oladoye Adewale is on the verge of being named on the lists.

Despite the late invitation to foreign based players to the German clap of the Eagles, a source who is very close to the goingson concerning players in the camp told our reporter that coach Aigbogun is having selection headache on who should make the final list adding that the arrivals of the foreign players are no threat to Adewale.

“As I am speaking to you, the camp is tensed up. Extensive lobbying by agents is going on but Paul Aigbogun is an astute coach of integrity and will release the best squad for Nigeria.

“Adewale has been a revelation since he joined in the camp and he has a bright chance to make the final squad. I am hopeful about his inclusion,” the source who pleaded anonymity said.

The Nigeria team has been in Germany’s camp for two weeks preparing for the competition which kicks off next month in Poland.

Despite missing out during AFCON U20 in Niger, the 18 year old energetic midfielder continue to impress since joining the team.

The robust play of the Water FC midfielder will add speed, creative and incisive tackles to the team as regards a ball holding midfielder that will slow down the opponent fluidity.

Just as the team failed to impress in the build up matches, the coach is set to release surprise lists of players Monday.

Nigeria will trade tackles with Ukraine, Qatar and United State.
