Nigerian striker leaves a Lagos-based academy to join the champions of a European League

A reliable destination for football scouts is Nigeria because talent is abundant in the nation. Many people invest in Nigerian football academies because the industry is getting bigger and lucrative by the day.

The dream of most football players in Nigerian academies is to play in Europe and this is what just happened to Adams Olubi who used to play for a Femmak Academy in Lagos. He revealed this in his interview with his new club in Europe.

The Nigerian just joined the Lithuanian Champions, FK Žalgiris, the same club that Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi played for last season. In his interview, he revealed that he is a striker who can also play as a winger.

It is his first time in Europe, and he wants to learn, work hard, score goals, and deliver for the club. He loves Lithuania because the atmosphere is good, the people are friendly, they teach football and help talented players get bigger opportunities. 

He looks forward to spending quality time with the club because he is just 18 years old and wants to develop his talent. 

Congratulations to him.
