20-year-old forward Ignatius Ganago opened his account for the season with a vital goal in Nice’s 1-2 win against Nimes in match day 2 of the French league 1.
The youngster drew second blood in his team’s away match to Nimes that turned out to be the winner for Patrick Vieira’s troops.
The striker’s 16 minute goal was a reminder of how reliable he could be to Olympic Lions Coach Rigobert Song who recently released a list of 23, U23 players without a glimmer of Ganago.
The lad was constantly visited by former Indomitable Lions coach Clarence Seedorf and it wasn’t just for his looks. This prodigy since joining the French firs-tier side has scored goals in fast and furious mode leading to his rapid ascension up the ladder. Ganago scored 9 goals out of 13 games for Nice II and his reward was; getting the faith of his coach who believes in young talents.
