Ex-Super Eagles Star, Mutiu Adepoju Scores Twice In Friendly Match
While the Western world will say 'form is temporal and class is permanent', in this part of the world, we simply say 'e still dey bodi'.
That was the case on Tuesday as former Super Eagles star, Mutiu Adepoju showed he still has it in him at 47; scoring both goals in the 2-0 victory for ex-internationals in their game against a selected Allstars team at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.
NFF 2nd vice-president, Shehu Dikko missed a penalty kick for the Allstars team as the yesteryears were rolled back and the likes of Mobi Oparaku, Victor Agali, Yisa Sofoluwe, Ifeanyi Udeze and many others were all on the pitch for some action.
In his active days, Adepoju who is fondly referred to as the Headmaster played mostly as an attacking midfielder.
For 12 years, Adepoju appeared for the country in three World Cups and as many Africa Cup of Nations.
He was part of the squads for the FIFA World Cups in 1994, 1998 – where he scored in a 3–2 win against Spain– and 2002, although he did not play in the latter tournament.
Adepoju is presently the head of the La Liga office in Nigeria.
