Nile Ranger, who turns 19 on 11th April, is keen to press further for a first team position at Newcastle United, and he knows when he gets a chance he has to score goals.
Nile Ranger – striker of the future at Newcastle
We haven’t heard too much from Nile recently, and since Leon Best was signed in January, Nile went down the pecking order at the club, but just a little bit.
The Londoner has today talked to the Evening Chronicle about scoring goals:
“I haven’t been getting on much, because all the strikers are fit.” “But when I do get a game, I’ve got to put the ball in the net.”
“Hopefully that can start again at Bristol tonight.” “I’d be grateful for any chance that I get.”
“As a striker you always want to get on in a game like that, and try to snatch a goal.”
The Chronicle is saying today that Nile has already turned 19, but we think not, and he doesn’t turn 19 until April 11th. That’s his birthday on the official site and in other information we have checked out.
Nile has played 12 times for the England U19 side and scored 6 goals, and has already made 30 appearances for Newcastle United, with 7 starts and 2 goals. Not bad for one so young.
And maybe that will be 3 goals after the game at Bristol City today.
Nile has a huge future at Newcastle, and he’ll just have to be a little bit patient, but we also suspect that a striker will be sold this summer, and the favorite has to be Shola Ameobi, but we’ll have to wait and see on that one.
