Nigeria's Flying Eagles first choice goalkeeper at the on-going WAFU B U20 Championship, Nathaniel Nwosu has showered encomiums on his role model, Petr Cech on the birth anniversary of the ex Chelsea ace.
Cech, stands as a role model to the young goalkeeper, who declared that it has been an annual activity in the last five years to send a felicitation message to the former Czech Republic shot stopper.
"I always try to watch the videos of Cech. He's supremely gifted and a good leader on the pitch. I try to model my game around him and also get better in my own way", Nathaniel stated.
The tall, lanky goalkeeper expressed how he covets the gift and talent of Cech, whose retirement left a vacuum, according to the Nigerian youngster.
"Cech is my role model and for the past 5 years, I have always celebrated him on the 20th of May. I enjoyed watching him always", Nwosu said.
He added, "It's fortunate for me that we're playing the WAFU tourney final today and if I win the trophy, it is not out of place to dedicate it to my role model on his birthday".
The Water FC product concluded by saying he's looking forward to a great performance today, as the Flying Eagles seek to ghost past the Junior Squirrels of Benin Republic.
