Chidera Ejuke is the new star in Holland after he continues to score goals for youthful Heerenveen, while Jamilu Collins and Wilfred Ndidi are unlikely scorers in Germany and England, respectively.
Three seasons ago, the Super Eagles left back was plying his trade in the German third-tier league and so it was have been an unforgettable experience for him to score his first goal in the Bundesliga. And it was a strike worth the long wait – a cracking belter from almost 30 metres against perennial champions Bayern Munich.
The experienced striker has continued to roll back the years after he notched his 16th goal of the season in Norway for table-topping Molde. Two seasons ago it looked like his career had ran its course no thanks to a long-term knee injury for his Chinese club. But Leke James returned to Norway and he is now in the goals race as well as knocking on the doors of the Super Eagles.
Leicester City recorded their biggest ever win in the Premier League, moved to third on the table and their Nigeria enforcer crowned this milestone with his first goal of the season. And the defensive midfielder also showed strikers just how to score a goal with your back to the target.
After a season in which he barely stayed up in La Liga, Villarreal are surging up the table in Spain and part of the reason is their Nigeria star, who came off the bench to snatch the final goal in stoppage time in a 5-1 annihilation of Real Betis. Already with two goals to his name this season, he looks set to improve on his five-goal tally from last term.
The former Golden Eaglets forward scored twice to inspire SC Heerenveen to a satisfying 3-0 win at VVV Venlo and also justify the two million Euros the Dutch club splashed on him to snap him up from Norwegian club Valerenga in the summer. The top Nigeria star of the past week had already netted six goals playing from the wings in Norway before his transfer which says he will score more goals in Holland. The nippy winger has done enough to catch the eye of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.
