Igbinedion: My son will play for Eagles like his uncle Ikponwosa Omoregie

first_imgEfosa Igbinedion, an Ireland based Nigerian lawyer has tipped his 14-year-old son,Joseph to follow the footsteps of his mother and uncle who came to limelight whileplaying football. Born on July 31, 2006, the lad has football running in his veins as his mother,Izehiuwa, was one of the pioneers of women’s football in the country. Joseph’s mother, Izehiuwa( second right wearing headband) is seen here in a team photo of Edo Queens Football Club, Benin City in the early 1990s She was a founding member of both the Benin City Queens and the dreaded Ufuoma Babes FC, which inthe early days of women’s football in Nigeria, was the leading women’s football club. His mum’s elder brother, Ikponwosa Omoregie nicknamed Pele for his dazzling footballskills, played for the Nigerian national team and Igbinedion hopes his son, Joseph,will play for Nigeria someday but wants him to get grounded in his academics. “Joseph loves football. He is working hard and improving everyday. It would be nice tosee him play at the highest level. That will have to wait for sometime though. For themoment we ( he and Joseph’s mum) are ensuring that he is grounded in academics. The life of a sportsman is precarious. One accident could derail an entire lifetime ofambition. We want to see him succeed on both sides,” the elder Igbinedion said. As a budding footballer who plays in the central midfield position, Joseph combines thepace and ruggedness of Cristiano Ronaldo with the deft tuoches and guile of LionelMessi. Loading… Despite operating as a central midfielder, Joseph has on occasion be deployed as anattacking midfielder and deep-lying playmaker. His football exploits at school hasdrawn the attention of football authorities in the area. Last season the lad played forboth the U-14 and U-15 teams of Mungret Regional Football Club. He was also called up to the Under 14 of Limerick District Schoolboys/girls LeagueL.D.S.L(Association Football) boys team for the 2020 Kennedy Cup competition which isheld annually in June featuring the best talent from the 31 schoolboys football leaguesin Ireland. Joseph, who started playing football six years ago at the age of eight years is growingin confidence by the day while his exploits on the field have been yielding fruit too.He was a member of the Under 14 Limerick District Schoolboys League (L.D.S.L)team thatwon the Liam O’ Donovan Memorial Inter-League cup 2019. Aside team honours, Joseph has also garnered a few personal awards for his progioustalent. In 2016 he was voted the Mungret Regional Football Club Under 10 Red Player ofthe Year. In the 2017/2018 season, he emerged the District Schoolboys/girls League(L.D.S.L) Under 12 Premier Division player of the year 2017/2018. While the same seasonhe was crowned the Mungret Regional Football Club Under 12 Premier Division player ofthe year 2017/2018. Igbinedion whose long term plan for the lad is to see him donning Nigerian colours likehis famous uncle believes his son would be an asset to the Nigerian national team whenhe eventually gets called up to play. For the moment though, the lad is learning theropes and carving a niche for himself at junior football level where he is wowingfootball fans with his breathtaking skills.

He is good and reminds you of a player like the formerManchester United captain, Keane with the way he takes charge in the midfield. Hisconfidence is amazing. I cannot wait to see him grow up and begin to play for the SuperEagles,” Okafor said.

3 things Steve Addazio said on the ACC teleconference before Syracuse-Boston College

first_img Published on October 19, 2016 at 5:44 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati Syracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) will travel to Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, on Saturday when it takes on Boston College (3-3, 0-3) at 12:30 p.m. The Orange is coming off a 31-17 upset with over then-No. 17 Virginia Tech, while the Eagles are coming off a bye week. In BC’s last game, Clemson crushed the Eagles, 56-10.Here are three things BC head coach Steve Addazio said ahead of the matchup.RELATED: This is what Dino Babers said.Addazio wishes Pittsburgh was in the Atlantic DivisionSyracuse-Boston College has been branded as a rivalry game since the Orange moved from the Big East to the ACC. The two teams had played each other in the last game of the regular season since Syracuse joined the league, but this season, the two will square up in a matchup that could determine whether one of gets into a bowl game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe first two matchups between Boston College and Syracuse determined both teams’ bowl eligibility. In the 2013 matchup, Syracuse got its sixth win by beating BC, 34-31. In 2014, BC got its sixth win by beating SU, 28-7.Addazio said he’d like to see Pittsburgh, who is currently in the Coastal Division move over into the Atlantic Division to increase the number of rivalry games. SU will get its crack at the Panthers in its last game of the regular season on Nov. 26.“I think it’s fantastic … I wish Pitt was on this side. I was at Syracuse at the time and those are all big games,” Addazio said. “Syracuse, BC, Pittsburgh, they were all big contests. I think those are great within the conference when you have some geographic proximity and some history.”Boston College needs to control the ballAddazio said Syracuse turned its energy and intensity up a notch late against Virginia Tech, which helped propel SU to a win. Boston College has had two weeks to prepare for the Orange now after the Eagles were whooped by Clemson, 56-10. The Eagles also had a bye week last week.“As that game went on … they’re like, hey, we have a chance to go get this thing,” Addazio said of SU’s matchup with Virginia Tech.This week, he said his offense needs to keep the ball away from Syracuse to win the game. The Orange offense racked up 561 yards of total offense against the then-No. 17 Hokies, who were coming off a 34-3 win over a then-ranked North Carolina team.Addazio is hoping for some wind and rain The forecast for Syracuse’s matchup with Boston College is a high of 55 degrees, a 60 percent chance of precipitation and 20 mile-per-hour winds. When SU played Wake Forest, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, got a heavy dose of rain and wind from Hurricane Matthew, which had touched land on the eastern coast of the state.SU’s offense struggled in that matchup, scoring only seven points and allowing quarterback Eric Dungey to be sacked five times, a season-high. WFU thrashed SU, 28-9, in what was a close game until midway through the final quarter.Addazio stressed the Orange’s ability in the vertical passing game, and said he hopes it rains when the two teams meet Saturday.“I wouldn’t mind a little rain and wind coming in here, but I don’t control that,” Addazio said. “So that’s a little out of my reach.“If I could, I’d call it in.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
