Nigeria's domestic league giving fans enough reason to keep it local

Ranieri crowned by Schmeichel 160508
Nigerian football fans can now shift focus from scenes of Leicester City's trophy presentation back to their local league.

Barring a few Cup Finals, and of course the UEFA Champions League, the major European leagues came to a close last weekend.

And what a season it has proven to be.

England, as usual, led the way for the dramatics, with Leicester City's dream title triumph signposting what could be the dreams of many a small club, especially with the expected windfall from their new broadcast deal starting next season.

Who will be South Africa, Algeria and Nigeria's over-age Olympic players?

Itumeleng Khune
Goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune appears set to be one of South Africa's three over-age players.

A newspaper leak in South Africa revealed a rather embarrassing list of pedantic possibilities for South Africa's Olympic team, as they consider which over-age players to pick to strengthen the side for the men's football tournament in Rio.

Coach Owen da Gama's list looked more like a collection of personal favourites and brought howls of derision, followed by a rapid but unconvincing denial as spin doctors at the South African Football Association "slipped" an alternative list to the media.

Kelechi Iheanacho has become the shining example of the type of homegrown star that Manchester City are so desperate to produce after a stunning impact in his debut season.
