Player Profile: Yahaya Balde SmartCity Osun State Football League Top Scorer


Yahaya Balde is currently leading the goal scoring chat at the ongoing Osun FA Youth League, popular known as SmartCity Osun State Football League.

He plays for Ovits Academy of Iragbiji and despite his team poor league form at the Group B of the league, Balde has seven goals to his credit. He scored over 50 % of his team 11 goals so far.

The 17-year-old footballer has shown exceptional skills as a forwarder/winger, winning four high goal scorer titles in seven grassroots football competitions.

With his natural talent, passion for the game, Balde has the potential to become a rising star in the world of football.

Technically gifted in the final third with brilliant footwork, Balde has a speed gun at every game. His physique made it more difficult for defenders to shake him off. That makes him an audacious target man, if needed. He doesn’t mind a battle for the ball because of his self belief.
Take a bow Balde. Best wishes!!!
