    Well done Dennis. The only Super Eagles player with the highest starts in the Champions league and also qualified for Europa League

    Finally the Champions league group stage is over and we can now see the result of the Players of Nigerian descent who participated in the global show piece.

    Some weeks ago I said I will be checking out to see which of these Nigerian strikers is most prolific in goal scoring; and the Champions provides no better stage since it is where the best of the best do their business and it does not limit these players to the quality of their individual leagues.

    So below are the starts of Strikers with Nigerian descent (whether is SE or not)

    Names Appearance Goal Assist

    Tammy Abraham 6 2 1
    Emmanuel Dennis 6 2 1
    Victor Osimhen 5 2
    Peter Olayinka 6 1 1
    Stephen Odey 1 1
    Paul Onuachu 5 1

    So with this statistics, we can now see the current Super Eagles strikers that may need to give way for others .

    • Nicely written; I thoroughly enjoyed it.
      You get a like from me.
