Super Eagles Coach Holds Talks With Chelsea Wonder-Kid Over His International Future...

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed that he has held talks with Chelsea soccer whiz kid, Ola Aina. The talks aim at convincing the right fullback, who is an ex-England U20 international, to forget about the possibility of playing for the England senior side and pledge his future to the Super Eagles
Rohr told “It is normal to have this situation, when we have very good player [like Ola Aina] who can pick two teams. We always leave the door open to young talents.”

Despite been born and raised in England, Aina visited the Super Eagles Crown Plaza Hotel camp in London shortly before the friendly against Senegal on Thursday, alongside his father.

While the Nigerian Federation and Rohr are keen on the ex-England U20 international, the defender has not yet made a decision whether or not he would make a commitment to the Nigerian senior team.

Aina has recorded five first-team appearances for Chelsea this season.

The shipment, weighing 1,417kg, was reportedly heading to Belgium, before it was intercepted by the anti-drug police force in Lima.
Each parcel of the class A drug contained the Argentinian forward's face , his name and and a counterfeited version of his personal branding - a stylised 'M' logo that he has been using on social media for several years.

Criminals often package drugs up to look like popular brands, in order to make it less likely that anyone will inspect the parcels while they are transported.

According to reports, several hundred packages were also found bearing a knock-off of the official seal of the king of Spain Felipe VI.
This is not the first time that 29-year-old footballing superstar has had his identity fraudulently used by smugglers trying to peddle their wears, with crooks found to be selling a drug under the street name 'Messi' in 2015.

The Barcelona star's legitimate endorsements are worth an estimated £20 million a year.

United Kingdom based undefeated African boxing champion and Sky sports prize-fighter winner, Larry “The Natural” Ekundayo and his team paid a courtesy visit to Ooni of Ife, HRM Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II in London, during His Majesty’s visit to the UK, receiving the monarch’s royal blessing for his Commonwealth title fight.
Ekundayo, alongside former world title challenger, Olusegun Ajose, Bob Olukoya and foremost British boxing promoter, Ben Gray. The courtesy visit is part of the preparation and galvanizing support for the forthcoming Commonwealth welterweight title fight between Larry Ekundayo and Australian title holder Kris George on a major, televised promotion in the UK in June 2017.

This follows is coming after the Nigerian House of Representatives recently passing a motion, moved by Hon. Rita Orji (Chair, House Committee on Diaspora), pledging total support for Larry Ekundayo in his quest to return boxing glory to Nigeria.

Larry and Olusegun were blessed by Ooni of Ife with further promise of support, not only for the boxers but for all Nigerians in the Diaspora seeking to bring glory to their fatherland.

His Royal Majesty said he would join with the Alaafin of Oyo to support the boxers and urged all Nigerians in the UK, and Europe, to attend the forthcoming boxing event, to give maximum support for Larry in his forthcoming bout.

Ben Gray, Commercial Agent for the boxers, reiterated His Majesty’s call for support from Nigerians in the UK and in Nigeria. Ben pointed out the fact that out of the 8 heavy weight champions produced by Great Britain, 3 have originally hailed from Nigeria (Herbie Hide, Henry Akinwande and Anthony Joshua).

He added Larry and Olusegun have chosen to fly the flag their fatherland, and as such, they should be fully embraced and supported, so as to deliver success to Nigerians in the colours of their own flag, rather than those of other countries.

Obese Teenager Meets His Dream Girl After Shedding A Lot Of Weight. Photos

An obese student has found the career and girl of his dreams after shedding an astonishing eight stone. Christopher Feenan, was a miserable 19 stone and struggled to squeeze his 44-inch waist into jeans at just 17-years-old.
But when his pals invited him to join them on a lads holiday to Magaluf, he vowed to ditch his bad habits. Now Christopher is the envy of his mates with a powerful 15 stone muscular physique, shredding from a staggering 54 per cent to just 13 per cent bodyfat.

He has a new career as a personal trainer and is engaged to the love of his life beautician Charlotte. Having turned his life around he now trains many of the bullies who tormented him at school.

Christopher told Belfast Live : “When I look back at the pictures of me as a 17-year-old, I can’t believe how different I look. “As a teenager I was incredibly shy and introverted and had zero confidence around women.

“I would get called fat at school and I couldn’t even fit into high-street clothes. To make myself feel better I would comfort eat which only made my body worse. “I had no knowledge of what my diet should consist of. I would skip breakfast, have fast food for lunch and would have four to five takeaways a week.
“But when my friends suggested a lads’ holiday to Magaluf I knew something had to change. “I managed to shed eight stone, which was great. But after regular trips to the gym I then decided to bulk up.

“I adopted a stricter diet of high-protein meals and did more cardio and weight training.

"After college I became a personal trainer, which has been a great way for me to show others that anyone can achieve the body they’ve always wanted. “I’m now training for my first ever bodybuilding competition. I have the body I always longed for as a teenager and my energy levels are great.

“I am now engaged to my beautiful fiancé Charlotte. I don’t think I would have had the confidence to even say two words to her without having the physique I have now. “It has certainly helped me get my dream girl.”
