Top Competitions That Up And Coming Nigerian Players Would Benefit From Taking Part In


/ by Editor

There are a huge number of top competitions coming up in the world and domestically that Nigeria and Nigerian players can hugely benefit from. 

The team have a strong squad with the likes of John Obi Mikel, Paul Onobi, Chima Akas and Ahmed Musa making the team, they have a strong chance of competing on the international stage at a high level. Many people will have their eye on the Euro 2016 tournament in France this summer, so if you think you can guess what the scores will be, take a look at the Ladbrokes score predictor to see if you can predict the right score. With the international stage beginning to open up, we take a look at the top competitions that up and coming Nigerian players would benefit from taking part in.

Nigeria Super Six Academies Cup
This tournament is the perfect opportunity for up and coming Nigerian players to take on each other and build some experience. The tournament features the top under 18 youth soccer academies in Nigeria who face each other to win the cup. This competition is the perfect start to build a competitive nature in their young players which they can build on throughout their careers.

Nigeria Premier League/ Nigerian FA Cup/ Nigerian Super Cup
The Nigeria Premier League is the highest level of domestic football in Nigeria and provides the perfect opportunity for Nigeria’s up and coming stars to impress, in order to get potential call ups for the Africa Cup of Nations and possibly even the 2018 Russia World Cup. The Nigerian Premier League has been won most recently by Enyimba, who have now won the league a total of seven times. The League has also been won by Rangers International six times, Shooting Stars five times and Iwuanyanwu Nationale/Heartland five times over the years.

Playing in domestic leagues and competitions is the ideal opportunity for Nigerian’s up and coming stars to really make a name for themselves, as well as gaining valuable experience playing in competitions and for cups.

African Champions League/African Super Cup
The African Champions League and African Super Cup could give up and coming Nigerian stars a taste of international football for the first time through their clubs, as they face other African teams in competitive fixtures. Young players could benefit from this opportunity massively and take any experience built from this to an even bigger level in the African Cup Of Nations or the 2018 Fifa World Cup in the future.

2018 Fifa World Cup Russia
Nigeria qualified to the second round of qualifiers after beating Swaziland 2-0, and up and coming players would do well to gain experience through the qualifiers and potentially prove themselves to make the national team for the World Cup if Nigeria were to make it through. Efe Ambrose and Moses Simon were the two goal scorers in the match against Swaziland, but the need for Ambrose might become redundant, as he reaches the age of 30 in time for the 2018 World Cup, leaving a place for an up and coming star to take centre stage.
