Sunday Stephen the forgotten One, but doing great in the MLS

Sunday Stephen Obayan is one of the Nigeria Players that so many people may have forgotten but nevertheless he's still playing football.

Sunday Stephen was former Spanish Youth International, he played for Spanish U19, U20 and U21 team before switching allegiance to Nigeria at the Senior level, he had his first and only national cap for Nigeria in 2010. He also had 5 caps for Spanish U19, 4 for U20 and 1 for U21.

Sunny as popularly known was born on 17th of September, 1988 in Lagos, he started his football career with Ebedi FC and Jegede FC in Nigeria before traveling abroad in 2004. He was with Poli Ejido in Spain between 2005-2007 where he had 63 appearances, in 2007 he moved to Valencia where he could only managed 10 appearances, though in the process he went on loan to Osasuna, Betis and Numancia where he had 4, 7 and 14 appearances respectively, and managed to score 2 goals while with Numancia.
In 2011 he left Valencia and signed a permanent deal with Numancia, appearing 63 times in the colour of Numancia.

Between 2013 to 2016 he has played for Bnei Sakhnin, CSKA Sofia, Alanyaspor.

In 2016 he moved to Real Salt Lake a MLS side where he was sent on loan to Real Monarchs, but he's back with Real Salt Lake and was in action in yesterday's demolition of Ashley Cole and Zlatan Ibrahimovic LA Galaxy in the MLS as they defeated LA Galaxy  by 6-2.

Sunday Stephen at 29 is doing fine as a defensive midfielder with Real Salt Lake and has being winning games with them.

With this performance, do you think he should be invited to the Super Eagles, do you see him doing better than what the likes of Onazi, Ndidi, Ogu and some others have done?
