Nigerians have been over the moon with the display of Golden Eaglets midfield maestro, Akinwunmi Amoo in their match against Hungary, dubbing him the Next Best Thing to happen to Nigerian football.
The dazzling youngster was instrumental to the Eaglets coming back twice to defeat the Europeans 4-2 in the match at the ongoing U-17 World Cup in Brazil.
Amoo’s displays did not go unnoticed as many Nigerians could not have enough of him and kept chanting his name, believing he has what it takes to make the Super Eagles team in the future.
It has also been reported that a plethora of scouts from top European clubs have been thronging the Eaglets camp and the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico venue of the match to catch a glimpse of Amoo who has been nicknamed Little Messi owing to his mercurial skills.
Golden Eaglets coach Manu Garba had introduced the whizkid off the bench in the 58th minute with the team trailing, and his endeavour in the final third was noticeably instrumental with overturning the deficit.
Nigerians who witnessed the game have hailed the youngster as the next best talent to watch out for,.
