Super Eagles across Europe were once again on the headlines over the weekend.
We take interest in their output in the different championships:
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Alex Iwobi is hoping that he will play for the first time for Everton in the English Premier League against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Friday. He didn’t play the Tofees first two (2) games.
SPANISH LA LIGA
Kenneth Omeruo is also hoping that after five (5) days of rigorous training that he will have the chance of playing when Leganese host Athletico Madrid on Sunday. Omeruo categorically states that two (2) La LIGA sides were on the verge of signing him before he settled for Leganese.
SCOTTISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Jo Aribo says that he is learning so much under Former England and Liverpool captain, Stephen Garard at Glasgow Rangers opining that he will be able to give his best when given the opportunity by Super Eagles in th ir next friendly Match against Ukraine.
The Super Eagles invitee, Joe Aribo continued his fine form for Scottish side Rangers as he scored in their 3-0 League Cup win over East Fife.
The 23-year-old midfielder who was recently handed his debut national team invite ahead of Nigeria’s clash against Ukraine next month, started in the heart of the midfield as the visitors were hoping to reach the quarterfinals of the cup competition.
Goals from Jermain Defoe on the 26th minute and another from Filip Hander put the Steven Gerard-tutored Rangers well on course for the last eight.
Aribo then added the cherry on the cake as he scored six minutes from time to make it 3-0 with the visitors progressing at the expense of their hosts.
Rangers will now turn their attention to Thursday’s Europa League qualifiers away at Legia Warszawa as they bid to reach the group stages of Europe’s second premier club competition.
