Lateef Omidiji Jr established he is also an influential figure off the pitch as he took time to meet some of the biggest names in world football.
The 14-year-old sensation, who is a potential Golden Eaglet was in attendance as the Nigeria Football Federation and Nike unveiled the country’s kit for the 2018 Fifa World Cup Russia in London on Wednesday.
Shortly after the ceremony, the Feyenoord wonder took time to tour around England’s capital city – and in the process met some of the finest footballers including the most expensive footballer in the world, Neymar Jr.
Omidiji Jr took to social media to share a raft of photos he also took with Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
It remains to be seen whether ‘Speedy’ will ever work with any of these players in future, but he certainly enjoyed his time with them.
