Itimi Dickson Edherefe is a Singapore international football player who currently plays for Persidafon Dafonsoro.

International career

Fast and aggressive in attack, Itimi provides width and decent flair to a Singapore national side midfield that lacks the technical capability. However, his consistency has been called into question and he has not been included in the national team in recent internationals.

Although he was born in Nigeria, he and fellow countryman Agu Casmir, received Singapore citizenship under the Foreign Sports Talent Scheme. Itimi was in the Singapore squad that won the Tiger Cup regional football championship in 2004.

He was given a 6 month ban from representing Singapore when he was absent from training with the national team. He later bounced back from the ban by playing well in league and was subsequently made part of the ASEAN Cup winning side.
