On 09.02.2011, Okoro made his debut for the Super Eagles, the Nigeria national football team, in a friendly match against Sierra Leone. Personally, I have been waiting for Okoro’s breakthrough for quite some time. Hopefully, the up-coming season will be a season to remember and eventually lead to a contract with a bigger club, for instance in Europe. The full name of Okoro is “Osadebamwen Moses Okoro”.

Tony Okpotu is one of the most promising strikers in the Nigeria Premier League. The burly striker has recently been attending trials at Norwegian clubs SK Brann and Molde FK. Okpotu failed to win a contract in Norway but during training at SK Brann, he showed that he has a lot of pace and strenght. Unfortunately, his finishing must improve. If Okpotu is able to hit double figures during the up-coming season, he will surely get another chance in Europe. According to 2muchsports, Okpotu is born 03.03.1993. According to MTN Football, Okpotu is born 03.03.1994. In any case; Okpotu is a young, exciting prospect with a bright future.
