Young Nigerian Goalkeeper Takes Big Steps Towards Chelsea DebutYoung Nigerian goalkeeper Prince Adegoke enjoyed a major breakthrough on Wednesday in his bid to make his debut for Chelsea U18s after making their 16-man squad for their final game of the season against Arsenal.

With Chelsea winning the national title after beating Manchester United 3-0 last weekend, manager Jody Morris brought a very youthful team to the Cobham Training Centre and named Adekoge among his five substitutes.

However, the young goalkeeper was one of the two Chelsea players that remained on the bench for the entirety of the game.

There was a debut for the young Arsenal striker of Nigerian descent Daniel Oyegoke who put in a full shift, while his teammates Ovie Ejeheim and Malcolm Ebiowei were unused substitutes.

Prince Adegoke was snapped up by Chelsea in April 2016 after he was spotted playing for the U12 team of Kent County Division 1 West club Club Langley FC.

Tariq Uwakwe and Fasutino Anjorin were important members of Chelsea U18 team in the just concluded season.
