Nigerian Under 20 star Daga Daniel has been given a rousing welcome by FC ONE Rockets upon return from the national team where he helped the Flying Eagles win the WAFU B Qualifiers and seal a place in next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Daga was received at the Victor Attah International Airport, Uyo at 7pm on Thursday.
Proprietor of FC ONE Rockets Rt. Honourable Nse Essien, alongside his wife, Ndifreke Nse Essien , General Manager Ubong Essien, and the player’s mother, Mrs Daga Ikyav and other family members were all on ground to give the FC ONE Rockets ambassador a warm welcome amidst excitement.
As a welcome gift, Rt Hon Essien Nse presented a brand new phone to Daga whose smiles were evident in appreciation.
The midfield maestro starred at the WAFU B Qualifiers in Niamey, winning back to back Man of the Match awards in the 2-2 draw against Burkina Faso and the 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in the semi final, where he scored a goal.
Daga played all four matches for Nigeria at the tournament as Ladan Bosso’s team clinched qualification for the Under 20 AFCON after missing out last time.
The teenage sensation is expected to bring a boost to FC ONE Rockets’s Nigeria National League (NNL) campaign that continues this weekend with an away tie at Nnewi United on Saturday.
