Nigeria youth international defender Lukman Zakari posted a fine performance in his first game for his new team FS Metta in Latvia by helping the U20s to a 2-0 win away to Lithuania oufit Jonova.


Zakari was drafted to the youth team to help him build his fitness ahead of a possible debut with the main team and the former Nigeria U17 and 20 ace didn’t disappoint with a strong performance.

The Kaduna born defender was supposed to spend a month with the team before a three year contract will come to effect but just a week into his stay, the club has already started the process of getting him a residency.

Owngoalnigeria.com exclusively gathered that the soon to be 20 year old in December this year will receive his ‎residence permit on the 25th of this month after a successful application.
