Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi bags a Zlatan-esque golazo and a beautiful assist for Nigeria v Italy
Was this the same Shola Ameobi that has been trying to break into the Newcastle first XI for the past 13 years.
The burly striker who won 20 caps for England U21s now has hopes of being part of Nigeria’s World Cup squad.
Tonight, he put in a performance that could seal him a seat on the plane to Brazil, scoring a wonderful goal as well as a brilliant assist.
For Nigeria’s opener, Ameobi put in an inch perfect cross before scoring a fantastic volley, reminiscent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Do we really need Zlatan at the World Cup if Shola’s going to be there?
