Isiguzo Shines With Arsenal’s Amputee Team

Former Stationery Stores FC of Lagos midfielder, Michael Isizguzo is making the best of his disability, as he is now making marks with the professional amputee football team of Arsenal in England.

Rather than give himself up to fate or turn to street begging, the jocular Isiguzo, who had his right leg amputated in the late 90s due a serious injury he copped while playing an exhibition match, has taken to a new level of the round leather game.

He intiially started out as a youth football club coach in Lagos, until he got a chance to travel out to the UK, where he has now been based for ten years and is making waves in the English Amputee Football League.

This much has been revealed bgy former chairman of Lagos State chapter of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (Lagos SWAN), Fred Edoreh, who is a leading member of the fund raising campaign for the Nigerian special football national team, Amputee Eagles.

He took to social media to reveal a photograph of Isiguzo in action for his club, with a bold caption that the reflected the ex-Flaming Flamingos star’s determination to keep getting a meaning out of football, even if it means playing the game with only one leg and crutches.

Edoreh posted: “Former Stationery Stores FC of Lagos top man, Mike Isiguzo bulldozing his way through opponents as a professional amputee footballer. Mike plays for Arsenal FC Amputee team in London.”
