Nigeria is one of the most represented countries in European football and it is safe to say that there is at least more than two Nigerians or Nigerian related people in every major league in the world, even as far as China. But how many of these clubs have more than one Nigerian super eagles or former eagles player?, Here are 3 of them.
1. Leicester City.
Kelchi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi are the most accomplished Nigerians, playing in the Premier League. Together, they even managed to lift the Fa Cup and the Community Shield despite being in a team that is regarded as average. The Duo are practically undroppable for Leicester City with Iheanacho heaping more injury on Manchester United even with Ndidi's absence.
2. Watford City.
Watford is probably the club with the most Nigerians in Europe. As at 2020, they had as many as 6 Nigeria related players. However now, they still have Tom Dele Bashiru, Etebo, Emmanuel Dennis, Troost Ekong And Dapo Mebude. Emmanuel Dennis, Etebo and Troost Ekong are already super eagles players while Mebude and Bashiru are yet to be called up.
Newly promoted Serie A team US Salernitana have two Nigerians on their payroll. Former Super Eagle Midfielder Joel Obi and Towering Center Forward Simy Nwankwo who is currently on loan from Crotone have been active for the club, as Joel has already put in one assist in the league while Simy is just one goal better.
