Episode 8 here
Thanks to @TomisinAjiboye for opening his heart to us in the last two episodes, we are grateful boss.
David Olatunbosun Alaba is a young player, born 24th June 1992 in Wien
Austria. Born to a Nigerian father and a Filipino mother. He is currently plying his trade at Bayern Munich, current UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE AND GERMAN BUNDESLIGA TITLE HOLDER. As a matter of fact, he is part of the treble winning all conquering Bayern team.
According to reports gleaned, he wanted to play for the Nigerian under 17 team that won the tournament in Korea, but because of “logistics and inability of the FA to contact him”, he didn’t take part.
He ended up playing for Austria as the youngest player ever to represent her at the senior level being just 17years.
Why all these stories? The main issue is that the singular act of choosing to play for Austria (a European nation) will deprive him of being at the world cup next year in Brazil.
When you and I are making decisions, do we look at the pros and the cons and the long term effect of our decisions (actions and inaction)? Most times, the things that happen in our lives are always interwoven and form a chain reaction that spiral into other aspects.
Alaba, UCL and Bundesliga champion also a German cup winner will be watching next year’s world cup on television because of his decision to opt for Austria.
Take careful thought when making your decisions, it is better to be late than sorry.
Special thanks to @edkhineT for pointing my attention to this fact.
This may be the last episode of “Life n Choices” for 2013. Thanks to all our writers and readers.
