How old are you, Oba?

It's A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! ! !

Some people have noticed that 3 players booked as Nigerean national teams' players are written to have the same birth date exactly.

After a little searching and investigating, they've found Oba's Hospital where he was born and according to the original paper HE WAS BORN IN 1978 and not in 1984, which are a shocking news.

The investigations are in its early stages, especially as the west socities representatives don't accept papers from the 3rd world as the most trusted.

But if it turns out to be true, it could be amazing.

I think Inter should look at Oba the teenger pics and figure out weather it's possible he was already above 20.

It could take some time so the news will reach to your favourite news sites.

I'm just gonna assume that a mistake was made and that Oba was born in 1984.

i am also going to assume a mistake was made as Oba was really born in 1986!!

You know, apparently it's common practice for young african players to lie or falsify their age in order to get an easier access to europe or make themselves more worthwhile to european clubs. I assume Martins is not one of these fakes and is as old as his documents says.

he does not look like 26 years old... he's style of playing also is not so mature...

African players to Europeans look pretty much same (similar faces, names), and in 120mln Nigeria they certainly have a good bunch of Oba...

MILAN - On the Nigerian FA's official website Nerazzurri striker Obafemi Martins' date of birth appears as 1 May 1978 instead of 28 October 1984 (as indicated on all documents in possession of the player).

Signed by president Giacinto Facchetti, FC Internazionale sent a letter to Nigerian FA officials this morning requesting that the error, reported in several Italian newspapers today, be corrected immediately

Nah man, Obafemi Martins isn't that old, this guy is lighting fast and does like 10 flips as his celebration, I don't many people have as much energy as this kid. And plus his gameplay isn't that mature.
