The fine performance of Enyimba Fc midfielder Ikouwem Udoh in his first game for Nigeria at the ongoing African Nations Championship has earned him advances from Norwegian side Start.
Ikouwem distinguished himself as Nigeria rally back from going behind to beating Angola 2-1 after extra time in the quarter final , a win which secures their progress to the semi-final.
Ahead of tomorrow’s semi final game coach Salisu Yusuf has already revealed that the 18 year old Enyimba left full back will keep his starting spot with regular left back Daniel Itodo still out injured.
It will afford Norwegian side Start the chance to further run the rule on the fast rising full back, who has emerged as one of the favourites of fans of the team after his dispay against Angola.
Scouts from the Norwegian side watched the quarter final game, and preliminary talks were reportedly held with his club in Nigeria, and talks could advance further after the semi-final game.
