 Iheanacho, Sturridge, Stoke scout in attendance as Nigerians lead Brooke House College to U18 ESFA title

Leicester City and Nigeria international striker Kelechi Iheanacho was among the spectators as Brooke House College's plethora of talented Nigerian youngsters helped the East Midlands school beat London Nautical College  3-1 to win the England Schools Football Association U18 title in an entertaining final played at the main bowl of the Stoke City FC ground.

 

Former Derby County striker Dean Sturridge, Xavier Daminet who is a scout working for the Belgian Federation and a Stoke City talent spotter were also in attendance.

 

 

Brooke House fielded a starting lineup with five Nigerians Thompson Ishaka, Miracle Ogudugba,    Kelechi Sopuruchi,  Kelvin Agho and captain Isaiah Otache.

 

Former Golden Eaglets captain Chukwuemeka Prosper Egbu and Jerry Pius Omeke were ineligible for the game and Adrian Ugonna Ezeihuaku was on his way to honour a call up to the Golden Eaglets but their absence did not affect Brooke House College as they totally outclassed their opponents to cruise to victory.

 

Thompson Ishaka scored both sides of half time after the opponent's canceled his first goal. Kelechi Sopuruchi scored  the third goal to secure victory in the dying minutes.

 

Brooke House College is a highly rated British private school with a top class soccer academy managed by former England international Micky Adams who once managed Leicester City FC amongst other top clubs.

 

It has a reputation of nurturing talented youngsters to stardom and has many Nigerian players in their ranks.
