The spritely 20–year old, who won his first cap in the spirited 1-1 draw with Republic of Ireland in London last Friday, said: "I’m so happy to be part of this team that I can’t wait to be with it at the World Cup. And I am talking about the 2010 finals in South Africa.   "I love my country, I love the players and the way they play and I love the ambition that you can see everywhere," said the lad, born on February, 19, 1989, and who is also being touted for the Flying Eagles heading to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt in September.   Omatsone’s father, Gbenga Aluko works for Chevron in Nigeria, while his mother, Sileola Aluko manages an healthcare company in Birmingham, England. It is a family of five, two boys and three girls, and he is the second born.   His elder sister and the first born of the family, Eniola, plays for England’s women’s team. "It’s her choice. Nigeria is my choice, and I love it here," he says.   Omatsone Aluko plays for Aberdeen in the Scottish top flight. He went there on loan two seasons ago and signed a deal at the beginning of the last season.
