Nigeria U-20 Ace Kingsley Michael Scores First Goal For Bologna In Loss To Napoli


Nigeria youth international Kingsley Michael continued his fine run of form for the U19 of Italian Serie A side Bologna with a goal to his name in their 1-2 loss to Napoli in the Primavera.


‎Michael who was a part of the Nigeria U17 team that won the 2015 World Youth Championship levelled for his team in the 45th minute, but ended up on the losing side after they conceded a late goal.

It is the third goal he has contributed to in just two games for the club as he bagged two assists in their last Primavera game, which was his debut for the team.

Known for his abilities to shoot from range and also his eye for a pass, the midfielder who is nicknamed Kaka Trigger joined the team in the summer when he clocked 18 after impressing for Nigeria at U-17 and 20 level.

His present form suggest a rapid rise to the main team could be on the card for him just like his childhood friend and national team pal Orji Okonkwo who broke into the first team after just three months at the club.
