The Nigeria U23 training session ahead of the second leg of their U23 AFCON qualifiers appears to have unearthed a potential star in the Nigeria national team set up in the future, OwnGoalNigeria.com reports.
16 year old Amos Prince was handed a chance to train with the team and the Tripple 44 Academy prospect showed why is he heavily sought after by a host of teams, including the duo of Dutch giants Ajax and PSV Eindhoven.
” He was not just quick, he was unbelievably quick. Very composed and can do the impossible from a difficult position. Dribbles, shots and passes are not difficult for him. If he continues to progress in this way then we have a star on our hands*, a member of the technical crew revealed in a chat with OwnGoalNigeria.com.
” The next step will be crucial for his growth. Move abroad or play for the U20s? He has to make the best decision but whichever he picks, the talent to make the best out of it is there for all to see. He left a big impression on all of us and we hope to have him back with us”, he concluded.
OwnGoalNigeria.com exclusively gathered that talented Amos was scouted in Ibadan during a scouting tournament where he represented Tripple 44 Academy early this year. He caught the attention of the chief scout of Malmo.
But before he was sighted by Malmo, Goteborg already saw him in a tournament in December last year. However as they were pondering on their next move Malmo wasted no time in inviting him over to Sweden.
In the month of September, he was in Sweden for 21 days and played in a test game for the U19 of Malmo against Danish side FC Nordsjælland, he wasted no time in making his mark by scoring 15 minutes into the game, he followed it up with an assist for the second goal.
That performance didn’t go unnoticed as the scouts of Dutch duo Ajax and PSV were present at the game. They have also contacted Tripple 44 Academy for more information on the talented winger.
Comfortable as a right winger, left winger or as a striker, Amos will turn 17 on the 12th of December but clubs want to have an agreement in principle to have the first option of signing him when he turns 18 next year.
