Ex Nigeria U17 Ace Zakari Joins Egyptian Side Nogoom FC From Portuguese Side Vizela

Published on: 08 August 2018

Former Nigeria U17 forward Yaro Zakari has joined Egyptian Premier League side Nogoom El Mostakbal Football Club on loan ‎from second division Portuguese side Vizela, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.

The forward was a part of the 2017 Nigeria U17 team that failed to qualify for the African Nations Championship, but his talent earned him a move to Portuguese side Vizela after impressing scouts of the club at a scouting event in Nigeria.

Yaro trained with Porto last season alongside the duo of Emmanuel Kuku Fidelis and Isah Musa but he wasn’t offered a deal, and upon his return to Vizela who are now in the second division he wasn’t farmed out on loan.

A powerful playing forward who is well rounded and gifted with the ball at his feet, he will join another Nigerian in left full back Michael Azekhumen ‎at the modest Egyptian side who are 12th on the 18 team log of the Egyptian top flight league.

He is a product of the famous Gee-Lec Academy of Jos, where Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem was spotted by scouts of FC Porto during a similar trial like the one that initial saw Yaro move to Portugal.
