Nigerian International

Abiodun who?
by Hardy on 22/12/2003

There was an unfamiliar name on the bench on Saturday.

Abiodun who?
Saturday saw an unfamiliar name on the team sheet as substitute goalkeeper.

Simmo has passed some details on Abiodun Baruwa. He is 28, was born in Lagos. He was part of the Barry Town squad that won the Welsh League and cup double after being signed by John Fashunu. Baruwa was been forced to leave the club just before the current season started after failing to get a work permit for 2003/4. John brought Abiodun along to Victoria Road recently to work with Daggers goalkeeping coach Mick Paine and he impressed during the 5-3 Capital League game last week.

Abiodun is a Nigerian International who was part of their 1996 Olympic Games Gold Medal at Atlanta winning team along with Daniel Amokachi, Celestine Babayaro, Nwankwo Kanu and Taribo West. He was again part of the Super Eagles squad which reached the second round of the France 1998 World Cup.

In club football, Baruwa was the goalkeeper for Shooting Stars Idahan when they reached the African Champions Cup final in 1996, losing out on penalties. From Nigerian domestic football, Baruwa moved on to FC Sion of Switzerland where he spent the 1997-98 season, and then to Sturm Graz in Austria, where he played until 2002.

Due to his work permit problems he can play only as long as he is not paid to do so.

Once again, it is a funny old game Saint!
