* Eberechi Eze, Anthony Ujah & Josh Maja
With the new footballing season already in full swing, players are starting to prove their mettle for their respective European clubs and helping them find victories even in the face of adversity.
Here, we will briefly profile three of the hottest Nigerian players in Europe :
Eberechi Eze (Queen Park Rangers): The skillful 20-year-old attacking midfielder scored his second goal of the league season for Rangers in their Championship win over Bolton last weekend.
While his knack for scoring vital goals in his short career is not in doubt, his work rate in helping stretch defences is another quality which could come in handy for the Super Eagles.
Anthony Ujah (Mainz): Ujah has started off the German Bundesliga season in some form, netting in games versus Augsburg and Stuttgart and is odds-on favorite Rohr’s most favoured option.
Having been with the team before now and coupled with his wide range of experience, he could gel well with his mates and provide the needed goals when he is added to the setup.
Josh Maja (Sunderland): With a return of five goals from eight League One games for Sunderland this term, Maja thus, boasts of an effective output for his team, his tender years notwithstanding.
His physicality and ability to take on defenders is a bonus to go with his finishing prowess.
