DID YOU KNOW ?

After a trial, Adebayor joined Metz in 1999 and played at the U-17 level for two years before joining the first team.

As he signed for Arsenal he was given the nickname "Baby Kanu" due to his resemblance to former Arsenal star Nwankwo Kanu, who Adebayor had idolized as a youth.

Adebayor chose to play for Togo despite being eligible for Nigeria.

Adebayor helped Togo to qualify for World Cup 2006 and started all of Togo's group matches in Germany.
