Akwa United in-form forward Alhassan Ibrahim popularly referred to as Mu’azam has been rewarded for his fine form this season in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Mu’azam has ten goals for high flying Akwa United, the team he joined at the start of the season from Wikki Tourist, where he spent six months to have his first taste of professional football.
Bar his goals, the forward who was once upon a time the most sought after Nigerian teen got a call up to the team, thanks to the good relationship of his agent (names withheld) with one of the coaches of the Super Eagles in Salisu Yusuf.
Head coach of the team Gernot Rohr tasked Yusuf and his other Nigerian assistant Imama Amapakabo to suggest home based players, who will join the team in France, when they converge for a get together.
Yusuf picked Mu’azam as one of the players, but just like the case of Musa Muhammed, Mu’azam inclusion in the squad is more of close connection between his agent and the Eagles assistant coach than his form.
