As the UEFA Champions League draws to a close, there are some unspoken truths that must be considered in the ongoing competition. One such example is the fact that there is currently only one Nigerian player in the UEFA Champions League.
The two English Premier League teams still in the Champions League got off to a strong start, with Chelsea scoring an away goal in a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid and Manchester City gaining the upper hand as they enter the second leg of the tie. Christian Pulisic, Karim Benzema, Marquinhos, Kelvin De Brunye, and Riyad Mahrez all scored in an action-packed Champions League week.
The Super Eagles, on the other hand, do not have a team in this season's Champions League semi-final, but there is a Nigerian player. Kevin Oghenetega is a freelance writer who lives in New York City. Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham, better known by her stage name Tammy Abraham, is a Bayelsa state native.
Tammy Abraham is a Chelsea player who, despite missing out on the semi-final against Real Madrid, is still an important part of Thomas Tuchel's squad. The England international, who had the choice to play for the Super Eagles, was born in Nigeria and was qualified to play for the country before opting for England over his African roots.
