AFCON

Talented Nigerian Youngster finally meets Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Not many youngsters can pass up the opportunity to take a photo with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Nigeria youngster Alfred Olaniyan Olatomi was more than happy to share a picture of himself and the AC Milan star on his social media page.

The attacking midfielder was meeting Ibrahimovic for the first time since joining Hammarby IF from Sido Academy on an initial 6-month loan in January 2021.

The 19-year-old played for the Golden Eaglets in 2019 and is currently a player of the Swedish club which is co-owned by Ibrahimovic.

Olatomi has been training with the youth team since he joined - so as to get acquainted with his new football environment.

Earlier this week, he made his competitive debut for Hammarby Talang FF, the feeder team of Hammarby IF and he's in line to feature in Sunday's game against Pitea.

The intelligent midfielder was a teammate of Hammarby IF star Akinkunmi Amoo during the 2019 U17 AFCON but didn't make the cut for the U17 World Cup due to injury.

Olatomi uses both feet pretty well and was seen by many as one of the most intelligent players in the Golden Eaglets during the 2019 U17 AFCON in Tanzania.
