14-year-old Nimi makes Nigerian football league history

The Nationwide League One, which is regarded as the most important football league in Nigeria, has become home to football history makers. One of the most prominent results, is the emergence of prodigiously talented 14-year-old, Nimi Solanke, who captained and shone brightly for Olumo United football club during its participation in this year’s NLO matches, played at their Ogun State centre.

Many who knew the immensely gifted Nimi, who is fondly called Wonderboy, were not surprised that he bravely led the young team paraded by Olumo United against bigger and older oppositions.

Patrick Adeoluwanimi Solanke, made history at the age of 14, as the youngest ever goal scorer in the annals of league football in Nigeria, when he scored the equaliser for his side that was credited as the youngest team against Lasegski FC in an NLO game.
