Meet Nigerian Giant Playing For Wycombe In The English League One

I have never seen anyone in the game this big. There is no better way to depict Nigeria as the giant of Africa than to have him lead the African giant into the football pitch in an international game. He is for sure a massive lad.

He is 1.85m and weighs 102kg. This 38-year-old Anglo-Nigerian, Adebayo Akinfenwa, plays as a striker for Wycombe in the English League One.

His side just got promoted to the English Championship after goals from Anthony Stewart and Joe Jacobson helped them beat Oxford United at Wembley in Monday’s League One play-off final.

This earned them a promotion to England’s second tier for the first time in their 133 year history. In the 2019-20 EFL season, he banged in 10 goals in 20 appearances to become the club’s top goalscorer.

Don't they say that heaven is filled with answers for our prayers but unfortunately we do not ask for them? One of the ways we can create opportunities for ourselves is by asking. While celebrating his team's stellar performance, Akinfenwa who was so elated screamed to the microphone that he would want Liverpool’s boss, Jurgen Klopp, to come to celebrate with him.
