Striker Idd Abdulwahid was the name on every Ugandan’s lips after the 2019 CAF U17 CECAFA zonal qualifiers in Tanzania.
Not only Ugandans appreciated his immense contribution to the Cubs qualifying for the Total U17 Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in history but scouts from across the globe were also watching and they were impressed by the tiny silky pacy forward.
Italian Serie A side Cagliari is the next destination for the Ondunyiri lad (Junior side of Onduparaka) whom they are recruiting for their academy.
According to reliable sources, all paper work is done and the lad is set to travel on Monday 14th January 2019 to the Italian city of Sardina.
And it’s the reason why he won’t travel to Burundi with the Cubs for an international friendly against the hosts’ U20 team.
Idd scored four goals for the Cubs during the CECAFA U17 regional qualifiers for the continental finals which helped Uganda lift the regional trophy, he has also scored nine goals for Onduparaka Junior side
He is known for his agility, intelligence, skill plus a small but lion’s heart.
Football 256 wishes Idd Abdulwahid the best of luck at his new home.
