Kazeem’s journey began when ASE Ridyem’s coach, Adekunle Azeez Azular, decided to switch goalkeepers after the team’s 2-0 loss to Igbajo United Football Club. Though Kazeem conceded in his debut against Fehinty FC, he crucially saved a late penalty to earn his team a very important point.

That performance earned him a starting spot against Hammola FC in the subsequent match, where he kept a clean sheet and saved another penalty. He continued his heroics with another clean sheet in the next match against Karamba FC on Saturday, helping his team secure a vital victory.

Kazeem’s performances have surprised many! Though, the 14 year old has been outstanding for ASE Ridyem FC in the Under 17 SmartCity Osun State Football League, no one ever thought that he would take that form to senior team.

Known for his confidence and all-around goalkeeping skills, particularly his ability to play the ball out from the back, Kazeem has been instrumental in helping Coach Azular’s team climb away from the bottom of the NLO table.

Coach Adekunle Azeez Azular’s faith in Ridwan has been rewarded, with the young goalkeeper proving himself as a key asset for the team. With each game, Ridwan continues to grow and impress, demonstrating the potential for a bright future in football.

Despite his young age and slight frame, Kazeem has proven his ability to handle the pressure of the NLO. His recent performance was his best yet, solidifying his position as a star to watch for the future.
