The youngest member of Home Eagles team to 2018 African Nations Championship in Morocco, Nura Mohammed has been promoted to El Kanemi Warriors first team.
Mohammed,15, striker, was born on December 2, 2002. His hobbies are watching and playing football.
The left-footed player is one of seven youngest players at the biennial tournament below 18 years. Nigeria’s Group C opponents Equatorial Guinea have the highest number, with four of their players aged 17.
Meanwhile, Mohammed’s choice of Arsenal and Germany attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil as his role model has continued to attract negative comments on twitter since NFF uploaded his profile on January 7.
Many are of the opinion the youngster should have chosen a striker.

@FisayoDairo: I believe the lad is actually a left-footed attacking midfielder. And having seen him before, I can say he has poor man’s similarities with Mesut.
