Chido Obi-Martin, Arsenal’s U17 striking sensation, has made a significant impact at the Flamengo Adidas Cup in Brazil, securing the title of Striker of the Tournament.

Arsenal‘s promising U17 forward Chido Obi-Martin has been awarded the title of Striker of the Tournament at the Flamengo Adidas Cup in Brazil, marking a significant achievement for the young talent in the Gunners’ ranks.

Obi-Martin, who holds dual nationality as a Denmark U17 international of Nigerian descent, played a pivotal role for Arsenal during the tournament.

His outstanding performance was highlighted in the opening game against Flamengo, where he scored both goals in a 2-1 comeback victory, earning him the Man of the Match accolade.

The Danish-Nigerian striker showcased his skills as a formidable super-sub in a subsequent match, coming off the bench to score twice.

The striker showcased his skills further as a formidable super-sub in a subsequent match, coming off the bench to score twice despite Arsenal U17s narrow 4-3 defeat to Santos Laguna.

Obi-Martin demonstrated his skill and composure under pressure, successfully converting two penalties he won in matches against Flamengo and Santos Laguna.

Arsenal have shown a clear commitment to nurturing Obi-Martin’s development, securing his future with the club until 2026. The young striker is set to sign scholarship forms with the Emirates Stadium outfit next summer, an indicator of Arsenal‘s confidence in his potential.

His rise through the ranks has been meteoric. Obi-Martin has already made his debuts in the U18 Premier League, UEFA Youth League, and Premier League 2, all while still a schoolboy.

This early exposure to competitive football at various levels speaks volumes about his capabilities and Arsenal‘s investment in youth development.

FA start tug of war for goalscoring Arsenal youngster

The English Football Association (FA) is actively pursuing Arsenal’s football sensation Chidozie Obi-Martin, hoping to convince the 16-year-old to represent England instead of Denmark.

Obi-Martin’s recent performance, scoring 10 goals in an U16 match for Arsenal, has significantly raised his profile, catching the FA’s attention.

FA aims to sway Arsenal’s Danish prodigy to England

The English Football Association (FA) is reportedly making efforts to persuade 16-year-old Danish football prodigy Chidozie Obi-Martin to switch his national allegiance from Denmark to England.

Obi-Martin, who recently scored an impressive 10 goals in an U16 match for Arsenal, has been a topic of interest in both Denmark and England.

Despite currently playing for the Danish U17 national team, Obi-Martin has previously represented both England and Denmark at the youth level.

This situation leaves him with the option to represent England in the future.

The FA’s interest in Obi-Martin has intensified, particularly after his remarkable performance in the 10-goal match against Liverpool.

The Daily Mail has reported on the FA’s intentions to entice Obi-Martin to change his national team allegiance. This move is in response to Obi-Martin’s growing prominence and potential as a young footballer.

The Danish Football Association (DBU) acknowledges that Obi-Martin is not bound to Denmark and could opt to play for England.

Jesper Mikkelsen, the U17 national coach for Denmark, confirmed earlier in November that players can change their national team once after playing the current round of matches.

This rule leaves the door open for Obi-Martin to potentially switch his national team allegiance to England in the future.
