At a gathering on Grange School, Lagos for the second FCV Gladiator Camp, four Students Chikwere Ikpo, Yakubu Danladi, Stephen Akhimien, and Sadiq Musa, who were among the over 100 student were awarded with scholarships for training tours in the UK.

The five-days exercise was arranged by Dynaspro Promotion Limited together with the UK-based FCV International Academy with the aim of unearthing talents in their effort to enhance the football ecosystem in Nigeria.

These students were expected to embark on a two-week training tour of the UK-based FCV International Academy by July.

Mutiu Adepoju, Former Super Eagles star,  guided the students on combining sports and education, as he appreciated the organisers for staging such a camp that will improve football development in the country.

“I served as an example to you all. My career would have been cut short if I failed to imbibe the spirit of resilience. I almost gave up when I was dropped by club and national team coaches, but the capacity to withstand difficulties kept me going, and here I am today, telling you all my success stories. I urge you all never to give up, and I pray you will succeed in all endeavours,” Adepoju said.

Kareem Karacauli, the senior manager at FCV International Academy, Reacted to the successful scouting programme,  describing Nigeria as a breeding ground of football talents that should be well harnessed.

“I’m satisfied with what I have seen so far. Although most players are still works in progress, I think they will all improve as time goes on. We spotted some qualities in some of the players, and the ability to take the ball under control instinctively is another key skill we all observed. Some players know exactly what they’re going to do before receiving the ball, and I think with all these, the lads will go places,” he stated.
