Iorfa pleased with son’s progress


Dominic Iorfa Junior in U21 Premier League action for Wolves

Former Nigerian international and Lobi Stars surpremo, Dominic Iorfa, is excited with the progress of his son, Dominic Iorfa Junior, who plays football in England. 

Dominic Iorfa Junior, plays in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League for Wolverhampton Wanderers and made his debut for England’s Under-18s in a friendly against Italy last week.

The match for England’s Under-18s under Noel Blake marked a new beginning for the young central defender, who was in the Wolves Under-21 squad that recorded a 2-1 win over West Ham, before the friendly.

“I’m excited with his development at Wolves and England. I was in Belgium for the match and he had a good game against the Italians,” the former Nigerian international said to supersport.com.

When asked why the youngster plays in the central defence, the former QPR and Galatasaray striker said: “It’s better for him so as to avoid any comparison with me. As a striker, he will be under pressure to be like his father.

“However, he’s enjoying his game in the defence for Wolves and England.”

Iorfa revealed that the youngster has learnt a lot at the Molineux.

“With his consistent performance, I expect him to get a chance to play in the first team of Wolves in the Championship one day,” Iorfa stated.

Supersport.com learnt that the youngster started his football development at one of his father’s former clubs, Southend United, before heading for Wolves
