Coach Olumide Ajibolade believes his Beyond Limits wonderkids Kparobo Arierhi and Farouq Ogundare deserve their spots and will thrive in the Flying Eagles.

Remo Stars youth Olumide Ajibolade has expressed optimism that rising Beyond Limits Academy starlets Farouq Ogundare and Kparobo Arierhi fully deserve their call–ups to the Nigeria U20 squad for the upcoming All African Games.

Pulse Sports Nigeria reports that both players are part of a 30-man list made public by Flying Eagles boss Ladan Bosso for the trip to Ghana.

The talented teens have been rewarded for their superb form at club level for Beyond Limits in the TCC and NNL this season. 

Speaking exclusively to Pulse Sports after the list was released to the public, coach Olumide noted that both players will make a smooth transition to international.

“Yes, I think they deserve it (the invitation),” he said. “It’s a recognition of their efforts and improvement.”

This season, centre forward, Kparobo has been in fine scoring form for Beyond Limits.

He has netted 16 goals in 12 matches in the TCC and TCC Cup for the Sky Blues while his teammate, Ogundare, has two goals and one assist in 11 appearances.

Coach Olumide revealed further that three other Beyond Limits stars merited a place in the squad but missed out.

“[Onyebuchi] Obasi for sure,” he added when asked which other players could have made the team. 

“Dikko in defence, Darius - right back - top, top,” he concluded.

But for now, all eyes are on rising stars Kparobo and Ogundare as they prepare for their first major national assignment.

Both players will look to light up the All African Games slated for Ghana next month.
