Nigerian Youngsters Shine In Korea As England Shoves Italy To Reach Final. by emperormero(m) : 2:20 pm On Jun 08

¤FIFA U-20 WORLD CUP KOREA REPUBLIC*

England come from
behind to reach final



England advance to
first-ever U-20 World Cup final.

Italy's Riccardo Orsolini jumps to
top of goalscoring list (5)

England came from behind to beat Italy 3-1 and advance to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017 final thanks to second-half strikes from Dominic Solanke and Ademola Lookman.

Riccardo Orsolini fired
Italy in front before the clock hit the two-minute mark with a clinical finish from an assist by strike partner Andrea Favilli.

The goal, his fifth of the tournament, moved Orsolini to the top of the tournament's goalscoring list.

England responded with a series of attacks through Dominic Solanke and Kieran Dowell, but failed to find the goal
before the break.

The Young Lions started the second half in control and eventually their persistence paid off. In the 66th minute, Dominic Solanke calmly slotted a shot in after Andrea Zaccagno paried Sheyi Ojo's cross into his path.

The momentum swung in favour of Paul Simpson's side, and 11 minutes after Solanke's equaliser, Lookman fired in the winning goal. The Everton forward scored his third of the
tournament after club
team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin initially tried to control an Ojo cross with his head.

The ball fell to Lookman's and he made no mistake with
the finish from close range.

Solanke then got his brace, and fourth of the tournament, with a long-range shot that evaded the outstretched arms of
Zaccagno and sent the
Young Lions to a first-
ever U-20 World Cup
final which will be against Venezuela, coming up on the 11th of June.

Dominic Solanke

Ayodele "Dom" Solanke-Mitchell (born 14 September 1997) plays for Chelsea.

Although Solanke prefers playing as a striker, he can also play as a winger on either side and as an attacking midfielder.

He has represented England up to under-21 level.

On 30 May 2017, it was announced he had agreed to join Liverpool on the expiration of his contract for a compensation fee to be set by tribunal as Solanke is a homegrown (England) player under the age of 24.

International career

Solanke has represented England at all youth team levels.

In May 2014, Solanke was part of the England squad that won the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship. He was the tournament's joint top scorer with four goals in four appearances, a brace against Turkey, a goal in the semi-final secured a place in the final, and England's goal in the final.

In January 2015, Solanke was named England Men's Youth Player of the Year 2014. On 25 March 2015, Solanke collected his YPOTY trophy and was invited to train with the senior England squad.

Solanke was named in the 2016 UEFA European Under-19 Championship squad, alongside fellow Chelsea players, Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham, and Isaiah Brown.

He is eligible to represent Nigeria through his descent.

Ovie Ejaria

Oviemuno Dominic O. "Ovie" Ejaria (born 18 November 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Liverpool.

Born in London to Nigerian parents, Ejaria, grew up supporting Arsenal for whom he played for nine years before signing for Liverpool in summer 2014. His first senior appearance was in a pre-season friendly prior to the 2016-17 season against Tranmere Rovers on 8 July 2016.

Despite being relatively unknown prior to the game, he performed exceptionally well and caught the eye of first team manager Jürgen Klopp who selected him for four more friendlies over the summer.

His first competitive call-up came on 16 September in a Premier League match against Chelsea. He was an unused substitute in Liverpool's 2–1 victory.
Four days later, he made his first team debut against Derby County in the League Cup replacing Roberto Firmino in the 3–0 victory.

On 25 October, Ejaria made his full debut in the fourth round of the EFL Cup in a 2–1 win over against Tottenham at Anfield. On 6 November 2016, he debuted in the Premier League, coming on as a substitute in Liverpool's 6–1 home win over Watford.


Ejaria is eligible to represent England or Nigeria internationally.

He trained with the Nigeria Under-17s team in 2013 and stated that his international allegiance lay with the country in 2014.

However, despite rumours of a senior Nigeria call up being in the offing, Ejaria accepted a call up to the England U20 team on 30 September 2016. He made his debut for the Under-20 team on 7 October, in a 3–1 win against Germany, playing the whole match.

The Nationality of Kyle Walker-Peters' parents could not be ascertained as at the time of making this post, but it won't be out of place to consider him as a Nigerian.
Especially because of his tribute to Ugo Ehiogu who passed on this year. Ugo Ehiogu

Ezri Konsa

Not much is known about Ezri Konsa Ngoyo, born on the 23rd of October, 1997. Yes he is an English professional footballer who plays as a centre back for Charlton Athletic but his name does sound African.

I strongly suspect he is from Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo or Angola.

He is sha an African.

See him celebrating with our Ademola Lookman
