When does the NYL start? Would be a good opportunity for him to get game time before breaching the A-League

You'd have to imagine at least a month before he gets any a-league action

So, if he's never represented Nigeria at any level, could he eligible for Australia if hes here for long enough?

Football is my life, it’s something that gives me joy. I would even play even if they didn’t give me money.

 

So that's how we fit Ruka under the cap...

I like this strategy of signing young guys who have something to prove after being unable to bust through in Europe. I wonder if Popa is looking for people with ambition, but also not too proud to uproot halfway around the world to get some time on the pitch and fight for recognition.

 

I'm hoping he'll provide some good competition for that LB spot. He's saying all the right things at least.

He would have to be a gun. Can't imagine Popa filling a visa spot with a bloke all the way from Nigeria just to provide competition for Left Back.

Seyi played 60 minutes in the NYL defeat to Melbourne Heartless yesterday. 

He pulled up ok & trained with the main squad today.

Any word on how he played? Did Ruka play?

No, but the important thing is getting Seyi's fitness levels up to speed atm.

Seyi & Marty Lo were the only senior squad members to play.

 

Ruka is pretty fit & could play some minutes in the Wellington or Perth games in coming weeks

Many of the ACL travelling squad will be given a well deserved rest, for the Wellington & or Perth games. :lazy:

If he doesn't play in the trail against Fiji U21's next Tuesday, I'd say he'd be a chance of game time in Wellington.

 

I would expect Alessi, Fofanah, Sotorio & Ruka to definately gets some game time in coming weeks.

Spoke to Adeleke and Ruka on Saturday, both said they expected to get there first game against Wellington.

 

Castelen was there too (at the pre match park thing), all nice guys, chatting and getting pics with the kids.

 

Unfortunately a lot of ppl didn't know who there were so it was a little uncomfortable for them at times.. :-)
