Re the U 20 WC in Argentina
« on: May 30, 2023, 08:40:18 AM »
I have a roommate who played football in Nigeria. He is studying in Toronto and playing College soccer here. He has trials with two European clubs this summer.

He is 23 and told me if he had stayed in Nigeria he would have been on the present U 20 team in Argentina. ;-)

He added that is cousin is a starter on the team and is 25 LOL.

He said one of the reasons FIFA can't ascertain these things is that many Nigerian don't have proper nutrition so their bones don't reflect their proper age. Whereas I understand that,  his family is comfortable and certainly well fed but when he casually told me about the ages on the team I had to laugh. I don't feel so badly now about the cut tail that those African teams give TT and Canada.

Hahahaha...bruh that ish is real.
Where I live in the US I've had friends from different African countries and they themselves would joke whenever someone presented themselves much younger than they looked.
Mr. Moukoko is the latest on my radar who professes to be 18...though he's from Cameroon.
Having said that, when it comes to FIFA's big competitions they now have a wrist MRI to figure it out.

So no more Luka Romero and Argentina, AND no Brasil!
Apparently Nigeria and Israel ignored the memo :)
