Meet The 46 Year Old Igbo Man, Who Made Nigeria Proud in Europe Once Again

Nigeria as the biggest black nation in the world consists of more than 200 million people and its citizens are found everywhere around the world. Most of those people that left the country are searching for greener posture but sometimes in search of this greener posture, some few of of them earn the country a bad reputation in the eyes of the world. But these people do not really represent the true colour of the Nigerians because there are still thousands of Nigerians citizens living abroad who earn the country a good image in the eyes of the world on daily basis.


Even yesterday, a 46 year old Igbo man identified as Nduibusi Emmanuel Egbo made history after he won the Albanian League with FK Kirana football club. Ndubuisi was the Former Super Eagles goalkeeper and the first Nigerian manager to win silverware with a topflight European club, After he guided FK Tirana to the Albania league title.The manager was born on the 25th of July 1973 in the Southeastern town of Aba, the commercial centre of Abia state. During his days as the super eagle goalkeeper, he managed to play in two tournaments of Africa Cup Of Nation and made 12 appearances during that time.


Ndubuisi was appointed as the FC Kirana head coach just two years ago, and after an unsuccesful season initially, he managed to win the Albanian League with the club yesterday. FK Tirana overcame a 2-1 first-leg deficit against KF Bylis Ballsh to win 2-0 in the second leg to advance to the final with a 3-2 aggregate win which handed them the title.
