In what can easily pass as his unofficial debut for Tunisian side CS Sfaxien Lukman Zakari played the second half of the team 2-0 friendly win over third division Tunisia side JSO stade.

17 year old Zakari came on as a second half substitute and displayed his traditional long range passes and quick thinking style of defending.

However he is still not eligible for the team in official games as he is yet to sign a professional deal which will most likely be the case when he turn 18.

Zakari was suppose to spend time with the junior side of the title chasing side but since resuming with the team two weeks ago he has been training with the main team.

He is presently with them in camp in Tunis and going by how much they rate the Nigeria U-17 World Youth Championship winner it won’t be long before he makes an impact at the team.
