Another Nigerian might join Eddy Ogenyi Onazi very soon in the first team of Serie A side Lazio going by how well Folorunsho Michael is progressing with the Primavera side of the Rome based team.

He scored his first goal for the Primavera side in their 3-0 win over Empoli to put gloss on a fine all round performance which saw him interviewed after the game.

Speaking on his goal he dedicated it to his late grand mum and hope the goal is a sign of more to come in their subsequent games.

“This goal is dedicated to my grandmum who died in the summer, my first thought was towards her after I scored and I hope the goal is the first of many to come”. He said.

On if the goal lifted a burden of his shoulder, Folorunsho insisted he was never bothered about not scoring as he always felt the goal was coming and most at times some brilliant goalkepping denied him the chance to break his goal duck.

Already he is looking up to their next game against the Primavera side of Roma and he is so confident of his team picking up all three points at home although he admitted that Roma are no pushovers.
