Grimsby Town Striker Likened To Moussa Dembele Chooses To Represent Nigeria Over England
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.
