Kanu praises Brian Idowu for choosing Nigeria ahead of Russia

Nigeria’s legend, Nwankwo Kanu, is delighted that Amkar Perm defender, Brian Idowu, opted to represent the Super Eagles internationally over his country of birth, Russia.

Idowu, who has been included in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the World Cup, was born in St. Petersburg to a Nigerian father and his mother is half Russian, half Nigerian.

‘’We are pleased that Brian has chosen Nigeria’s national team, and the fans really appreciate him,’’ Kanu told Russian News Agency TASS.
‘’He perfectly suits the national team’s playing style. Brian will be able to diversify the team, as he was brought up in another football system, it will only benefit the national team.’’

The former Arsenal striker said the presence of Russian-born Idowu in the Super Eagles will make the players more comfortable during the World Cup, a view that has been echoed by manager Gernot Rohr.

‘’He knows everything about Russia, and this will help the team before the World Cup in Russia.

‘’Every little thing is important, but we will have a player who knows the country, speaks Russian. He will play at home and help others feel at home,’’ added Nwankwo Kanu.

Brian Idowu scored eight minutes into his international debut against Argentina after coming off the bench and has gone on to make four appearances for the national team.

New York is a city that begs you to carry a camera every minute of every day, which of course I do. When you walk the streets of New York, you never know what awaits you with every corner you turn.

Male jewellery, on the other hand, appears to be governed by myriad of rules, but then that is generally true of male dress.

It’s just a desperate attempt to score political points against the Affordable Care Act before it goes fully into effect and the benefits become clearer.”
