Ansu Fati

Barcelona’s wonderkid and striker, Ansu Fati, from Guinea Bissau has been granted Spanish citizenship paving the way for him to play for them at international level.

According to a BBC report, the 16-year-old is also eligible to play for his country of birth, and also for Portugal through his grandparents. Fati’s application for Spanish citizenship was processed by the country’s Interior Ministry after he completed the required 10 years of residency.

This means that he could be included in Spain’s squad for the Under-17 World Cup, ahead of next week’s deadline. Even if he plays for Spain at under-17 level Fifa’s statutes mean that Fati could still swap allegiances at senior level.

This week, he became Barcelona’s youngest-ever Champions League debutant as he started the 0-0 draw at Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has revealed he is considering returning to the Super Eagles over one year since his retirement.

Ighalo, announced his retirement from international duty with Nigeria after his five-star performance at the Africa cup of nations.

Since his retirement, Victor Osimhen has been leading the Super Eagles attack with the forward scoring three goals during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

Ighalo has now revealed that he has not given up on returning to the Super Eagles team.

“I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr and Amaju Pinnick, and they congratulated me on my loan deal,” Ighalo told Brila FM.

“I am still thinking about returning to the national team, but right now I want to concentrate on my club career.

“I left the national team because of the distance between Nigeria and China, but now that I am in Manchester and just like life and in my career, you never can tell.”
