Moses Usor and Tella are some of the new Nigerian kids on the block who are also getting their acts together across Europe as they showed this past weekend.
The youngster came off the bench to smash a brace for Slavia Praha to trounce Pardubice 7-0 at home. Usor has now netted three goals this season following his transfer from Nigerian club 36 Lion of Lagos. The win lifted Slavia to the top of the standings in the Czech top league ahead of city rivals Sparta. They now have nine points after four rounds of matches.
The Southampton loanee struck twice for Burnley to record a thrilling 3-3 draw with Blackpool in the English Championship. It was a bright start for Tella, who has said he wishes to play for the Super Eagles. Such displays can only boost his self-belief.
The Super Eagles defender opened his goals account for new Croatian club Hadjuk Split in a 2-1 home win over Lokomotiva Zagreb. He also made 12 clearances in the game. Awaziem is on loan from Portuguese club Boavista.
The Super Eagles star has been Everton best player this season as a screen in front of the defence, and he again proved that in a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest at the weekend. He was full of running and commitment that many of the Everton fans who had questioned whether he has a place in their team are the same ones now raving about his transformation under manager frank Lampard.
Osimhen has enjoyed a great start to the new Serie A season with a rebuilt Napoli side, who lost several of their top stars in the summer transfer window. He scored for the second straight game as Napoli thumped Monza 4-0 at home. Should he stay clear of injuries and controversies, it is hoped he could surpass the 18 goals and six assists he registered in all competitions last season.
