Nigeria’s Sunshine Stars have signed ex-Feyenoord of Holland
winger John Owoeri to boost their CAF Champions League campaign.

The former Heartland, Enyimba and Ismaila of Egypt star already
made his Sunshine debut in a 2-1 Akure derby win over city rivals Rising Stars on

Recently the former youth international failed to join the Major
League Soccer (MLS) after trials with several clubs, while his stint with
Ismaila was controversial and short-lived.

He may now make his CAF Champions debut for Sunshine against
Etoile du Sahel in Sousse next weekend after the Akure club stumbled in their
opening Group A tie by losing 2-0 at home to champions Esperance also of

The experience and daring runs of
the 25-year-old winger are therefore expected to now boost the team.

Another experienced campaigner, midfielder
Cletus Itodo, who rejoined the team in the last transfer window, cannot feature
for Sunshine in the CAF Champions League because he is cup-tied having featured
for Dolphin in same competition.

Midfielder Sunday Emmanuel, who also rejoined the team from
Enyimba, has also been registered for the Champions League and featured against
Esperance on Sunday.
