The Tottenham Hotspur male Under-16 team captain and UK-born Nigerian promising talent, Timi Adekunle has congratulated the Nigerian Under-20 team at the ongoing 2023 FIFA Under-20 World Cup tournament on their success in the Round of 16.  

He expressed his delight at seeing Nigeria progress to the Quarter Final stage with a 2 – 0 win at the expense of the host country, Argentina.
Adekunle who hopes to contribute his quota in doing Nigeria proud sometime soon, in the country’s national colours, wished the Under-20 team more resounding successes as they progressed in the world cup tournament.

Born in 2007 in Newham, London; the 5 feet 11 centre back player is a bankable defender and playmaker in his own class, even as he is deft at overlapping and scoring from his playing position; a feat he demonstrated in his days in the Under-15 team with 3 goals to his name, while he has four goals yet and counting in the Under-16. 

Currently under the tutelage of the former Barcelona and Manchester City player, Yaya Toure; Timi is blessed with adequate potentials, commitment, sense of purpose and quality of character to ultimately rank among the greatest footballers in history.   All things being equal, Timi may emerge on the big stage sooner than later, as he is most likely to go on 2023 summer tour with the senior team. Perhaps, the Nigerian Football Federation will give the promising young talent a shot against any next international tournament in the age-grade category soon.
