 AKURE - FEBRUARY: Adegeye, a former professional Nigerian footballer, lays against the wall of his small apartment after dislocating his shoulder during a friendly match at the Akure Township Stadium where he used to play professional football with the Sunshine Stars years earlier in February 2014 in Akure, Nigeria. Adegeye first travelled to Turkey in 2011 to try and continue his professional soccer career when he paid thousands of dollars to an agent for a tourist visa, staying in Istanbul for two years where he worked in a produce market in between trying out for football teams while playing evening pick-up games. Adegeye returned to Nigeria in 2013 to visit his family only to have to residence card stolen on his way to the airport. Adegeye is now fighting to gather the money together to return to Turkey where he hopes to become a football coach.  (Photo by Jason Andrew)
