UEFA Champions League

4 Nigeria-born Players Scored All The Goals In Salzburg's 3-1 Win Against Wolfsburg

Four of six players of Nigeria origin who featured prominently in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League encounter between Salzburg and Wolfsburg, accounted for all four goals recorded by the tie won 3-1 by the former.

There aren't many games in the UCL where you see footballers of Nigerian descent scoring as many goals and this could stand as a record in the Europe's elite club competition.

A total of six footballers of Nigerian descent took part in the Group G game week 3 fixture at Red Bull Arena although they play for different national teams in Europe.

Wolfsburg paraded two of the players, Lukasz Nmecha and Felix Nmecha, two brothers who represent Germany and England at international level while Salzburg fielded Karim Adeyemi, Noah Okafor, Chukwubuikem Adamu and Bryan Okoh, who play their international football for Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Switzerland in that particular order.

Another major highlight of the encounter, which could also stand as a record was that the Nigeria descents accounted for all four goals, with Noah Okafor netting a brace and Karim Adeyemi also getting on the scoresheet for Salzburg while Lukasz Nmecha scored the only goal for Wolfsburg.
