  • Hmm hyping him up for the world cup abi,,no way for ameobi abegi

    Sammy Ameobi, the younger brother of Shola has been in fine form with Bolton football club in the English Championship and has so far given a good account of himself. The 6’4ft towering winger with amazing left foot has impressed greatly for Bolton Wanderers though his team currently are languishing at the bottom of the league table and hope his fine form can steer them out of the relegation waters.
    Sammy spots jersey no. 10 and indication of how highly rated he is at his team.
    This form should excite many nigerians at the time we are in need of young talented quality player to beef up the team ahead of prepation for the next world cup. With his imposing height and his incredible strength and pace, one imagine if he cuts the figure of a player who’s versatile enough to deplore to the left back position being left footer.
