Nigeria Under-17 Trainee Akiotu Stars In Crystal Palace U23s Win Over Hull City


Former Nigeria Under-17 trainee Jason Akiotu picked up an assist as Crystal Palace U23s power their way to a 3-1 win over their Hull City counterparts in a Premier League 2 clash.


Akiotu who had trials with Leicester City towards the end of last season recently signed professional terms with Crystal Palace, a sign of the fate the club has in his abilities.

Neat and tidy in possession. He put up a very good show which he capped in the 48 minutes with a lovely cross which was turned in by Jonathan Benteke, who had his elder brother Christian Benteke watching from the stands.

18 year old Akiotu trained with the Nigeria Under-17 team of 2015 in Abuja but reportedly left after just one training session before the team departed for the Africa Youth Championship.

The Emmanuel Amuneke lead lads beat all comers at the World Cup proper to lift the tournament in Chile.
