Grimsby Town Striker Likened To Moussa Dembele Chooses To Represent Nigeria Over EnglandPublished: August 03, 2019
Grimsby Town striker Ayodeji Owoeye has chosen to represent Nigeria at international level over England where he was born and raised, allnigeriasoccer.com has been informed.
The 2002-born player is targeting a call-up to the Golden Eaglets before the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup in Brazil.
Owoeye started his football education at Mass Elite Academy which produced Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder and United States youth-teamer Owen Otasowie, before penning a scholarship at Grimsby Town in the summer of 2018.
The 17-year-old is fast, skillful, strong, good in hold-up play and the ability to go past defenders is his best trait.
He scores a lot of goals and has been likened to former Celtic striker Moussa Dembélé who is now playing at Lyon.
A second year scholar at Grimsby Town, Owoeye was one of the promising youngsters invited to train with the first team in pre-season and caught the eye against Gainsborough Trinity in the Lincolnshire Senior Cup last month.
Hull City are among the clubs monitoring the progress of the talented teenager.
