Fake ages in African football.

  1. It's an old article but still, do you think this happens? I know there has been rumoured issues with Martins, Kanu, Jay Jay and Doumbia. It's all speculation obviously so treat it as such.

  2. I'm willing to bet this still happens.

    Just like immigrants who come over smuggling drugs, get caught, are about 6 ft tall then say they're 15.

    Under 16 so just a deportation and not jail time.
  3. In third world countries I bet it does happen, it's quite clever. Martins is still playing, I could have told you myself he's not 25. Hmm.
  4. Yea it's pretty common in sports for guys from small poor ass countries to lie about their age. It happens all the time with Dominican/Central American baseball players coming to America.
