Shola Shoretire’s Brilliant Form Set To Attract Nigeria, England

Shola Shoretire Attract Nigeria

Manchester United youngster, Shola Shoretire could be faced with the choice of representing Nigeria's Super Eagles and the Three Lions of England in the future going by his exploits with the youth team.

Shoretire, whose style of play has been compared to former Super Eagles midfielder, Austine ‘Jay-Jay' Okocha, has represented the Red Devils under-18 side.

Known for his dribbling skills, crafty play, and darting runs, Shoretire came into the spotlight in 2017 when he came on as a sub in United's 2-1 win over Valencia, and became the youngest player (14 years and 314 days) to appear in the UEFA Youth League – a competition reserved for Under-19 teams.

The youngster who recently scored his first-ever goal at Old Trafford – opening the scoring against Wigan Athletic and firing United into the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup, has been lauded by Man United Under-18 coach Neil Ryan.

“Good players can enjoy the big stage. [Shoretire] is a really exciting player. He's evolving and developing, can play several positions, he showed a great maturity I thought.”
