FIFA U-17 World Cup: Nigeria Aim For Round Of 16 Spot With Victory Over Ecuador

European clubs interested in signing Golden Eaglets captain Samson Tijani after the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup might face a stumbling block with several agents and clubs claiming to be the bona fide representative of the central midfielder.

Tijani has found himself in the same boat as former Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho whose father signed mandates with multiple agents to negotiate the transfer of the player to a European club before the 2013 U17 World Cup.


The Technical Committee Chairman Lagos State Football Association Dotun Coker, Siji Lagunju of the NFF Technical Department, French-Cameroonian agent Oliver Noah, and an unnamed agent based in Ibadan among others, have parental consent to represent the same player, Tijani.


Tijani has already put himself in the shop window after scoring two goals in the Nigeria U-17 World Cup opener against Hungary and winning the Man of the Match award.
