None of them recognised the Nigerian, and his identity had to be confirmed by support staff before they allowed him to finish up his training.
One onlooker reportedly said: ‘Nobody knew who this guy was and there was a bit of back and forth between them. The girls were pretty feisty about him being on their pitch.
