Chukwuma Akabueze was a member of the Nigerian team that took part in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada, they were eliminated in the quarter-final by Chile.

He knows how good he is with the ball at his feet and creates most of his chances in a special way. He is a composed finisher. Most of his goals come outside the penalty area, a dead ball specialist and incredibly skillful, with some of the quickest feet, he makes beating a player look easy, with nutmegs and ball rolls a trademark of his game.

He revealed in an exclusive interview on popular WhatsApp platform, Let's Gist Nigeria how he rose to stardom and playing football is ordained by God,

" I started my career in football just like any other African kid playing football on the streets but my first experience of organised football was from the Pepsi football academy in Akure.

" Growing up, I was determined to play football after listening to older people talk about the USA '94 Super Eagles and their exploits. I watched some of their tapes too and all I wanted was to just be as good as some of them and that makes me train hard, always wanted to be the best anywhere I get to because I love to play always, don't really like sitting on the bench

" Playing in Europe is one of the best things to have happened  to me,” To be honest, it has been amazing and a dream come true for me because everything  I’d dreamt off came true and I’m grateful to God for it all," he admitted.

" Of course, there is a huge and massive gap between playing abroad and playing back home in Nigeria; there are clear differences in terms of organisation, facilities, welfare and so on, but in terms of talents, I think we are almost at the same level with them.

My movement to Turkey was ordained by God  and it actually came through when I was having issues with my contract at my former club, Odds Ballklubb.

Chukwuma Akabueze born on 6th May 1989. He is nicknamed "Bentley". He plays for Turkish club Ümraniyespor. He started his professional career with Kwara United and made a huge impression at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada and his stunning winning goal in the 2-1 defeat of Zambia in the Round of 16 at the Lansdowne Stadium in Ottawa was considered one of the best goals of the tournament.

He later moved to Norway where he had great four seasons with Odds Ballklubb (commonly known as Odds or Odd Greenland) scoring 32 goals in 95 matches.

He reportedly signed for SK Brann in July 2011 and in 2013, Bentley transferred to Chinese Super League club Wuhan Zall. He was back at  Odd Grenland in 2014 before moving to Turkey two years ago.
