It's another weekend which means another weekend for football activities across different centers in Europe.

In England, the English Premier League continues with match-week 32 taking center stage, but also the semifinals of the English FA Cup.

The four teams remaining at this stage of the competition are - last season's finalist Chelsea, EPL table toppers Manchester City, Leicester City & Southampton.

While Chelsea & Manchester City locks horns in the big one, Southampton and Leicester go head to head for a ticket to the final.

The FA Cup is one of the oldest cup competitions in the world and is a prestigious competition.

Looking at the goalscorers chart of the English FA Cup, I noticed that two Nigerians are in contention to becoming the tournament's highest goal scorer.

Chelsea's Tammy Abraham who is originally Nigerian currently occupies second position on the log.

He hasn't featured regularly under Thomas Tuchel but with his stat in the competition, the German coach is likely to give him a start today against Manchester City.

Kelechi Iheanacho is the other contender on the list with 3 goals so far in the competition. The Super Eagles striker has been is top form of recent.

He singlehandedly took Leicester into the semis with his brace against Manchester United weeks ago.

Both players have at least a matche each under their belt to add to their goal tallies. Who do you see scoring more goals and emerging top scorer?
