Fans shower Praise on Nigerian Golden Boy, who Dribbles like Messi

It's been a brilliant start to the season for former Golden Eaglets dazzler Amoo Akinkunmi, who has been likened to Barcelona star Lionel Messi due to his dribbling skills and shooting technique.

The enterprising winger was on target as his team Hammerby IF beat Mjallby AIF 2-0 in the Swedish League on Saturday.

Amoo scored the opener after slotting home a low cross from Mohanad Jeahze in the 45th minute to give Hammarby the lead. 

The 18-year-old was also behind most of the good moves made by his team and was not shy in taking a man on just like the Barcelona star as he set tongues wagging on social media with his brilliant showing.

The trickster now has five goals in eight games this season, having scored once in the league and four times in the Swedish Cup.

Amoo, who completed his move to Hammarby in 2020 has featured for Nigeria at U-13, U-15 and U-17 level and has so far been one of the revelations of the 2021 Swedish League.
