It was a good weekend for some top Super Eagles players as they all scored for their respective European clubs. Definitely, these are the kind of performances the national team coach, Gernot Rohr will crave for.
Starting the goals galore is highly rated striker, Simy Nwankwo, as he bagged his 16th ‘Serie A’ goal of the season in his team’s 3-2 loss to Spezia.
The striker is now one goal shy of equaling Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s 17 goals in the top five European leagues.
Still in Italy, Super Eagles first-choice striker, Victor Osimhen, started and scored Napoli’s second goal against Sampdoria. He has now scored in 2 consecutive ‘Serie A’ games.
Seniorman, Kelechi Iheanacho, continued his fine goal-scoring form as he grabbed a brace in Leicester City’s 3-2 loss to West Ham United. Kelechi Iheanacho has now scored nine goals in his last six games and 14 goals in all competitions for Leicester City this season.
Paul Onuachu, Nigeria’s highest goal scorer in Europe this season, added to his tally this afternoon as he netted his 29th of the season for Genk. The lanky forward is also Africa’s top scorer this season.
Also, Joe Aribo scored a fantastic goal for the newly crowned Scottish champions, Rangers, and Moffi Terem scored his 8th goal of the season in France.
