Fast rising Rivers United winger Kayode Ishaq says he is delighted to have been named in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) team that will play the Budweiser Game of Kings which features La Liga legend, Roberto Carlos as well as EPL great, John Terry.


The former Remo Stars and Shooting Stars forward has been rewarded for his hard work and skill.

Ishaq, has gone about his work diligently and has been regarded as one of the talented wingers for Stanley Eguma’s Rivers United squad.

The former Golden Eaglets ace has wasted little time in becoming a fan favourite in Port Harcourt and has been tipped to eventually break into the national team proper.

“I am happy that the work I have been doing is being recognised. I am happy to work and learn from the players in camp,” Ishaq told the Media.

“Every player wants to play in such a big match so I am hapy to have been in so I am looking forward to it.”

It will be recalled that Ishaq was part of the NPFL U-17 All-Stars team that lost 2-1 to Atletico Madrid at the 2017 edition of Gauteng Future Champions tournament.

The Budweiser Game Of Kings comes up in Lagos at the Teslim Balogun Stadium from 18th-21st November 2021.
