Super Eagles defender Jamilu Collins will play in the German Bundesliga next season following SC Paderborn ‘ s promotion to the top flight on Sunday despite a 3-1 away defeat to Dynamo Dresden, reports Completesports.com.
Paderborn ‘ s closest rival for the automatic promotion ticket, Union Berlin held their hosts Bochum to a 2-2 draw at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.
Nigeria forward Suleiman Abdullahi who plays for Union Berlin came in as a substitute for Florian Hubner in the second half.
Both teams finished on 57 points each, but Paderborn picked the ticket on the basis of their superior goal difference.
Paderborn first earned promotion to the Bundesliga in the 2013/2014 season
but were relegated the following season, and then again to the 3. Liga the season after.
Collins featured in all of Paderborn ‘ s 34 Bundesliga B games in the 2018/2019 season but failed to find the back of the net.
The 24-year-old is in Nigeria’s 25-man provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
