Nigeria vs Saudi Arabia: 3 Super Eagles players to watch

The Nigerian Super Eagles will meet Saudi Arabia in an international friendly match at the Portim municipal Stadium in Portugal today.

Twenty-four Super Eagles players signed up at the camp, with the notable return of goalkeeper Maduka Okoye.

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro is expected to call up the best players for the friendly match against Saudi Arabia, the last team to beat world champions Argentina.

Netnaija brings you three Super Eagles players that you can watch against Saudi Arabia.

These players have impressed for their clubs so far this season.

1. Victor Osimhen

The Napoli striker has continued to score goals since last season.

So far, he has scored six goals in eight Serie A matches for Napoli.

Osimhen also scored a hat-trick against São Tomé and Príncipe in Nigeria’s last match.

The 24-year-old is now the fourth highest goalscorer in Nigerian history behind the likes of Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Segun Odegbami.

He will certainly give the Saudis a hard time in Portugal.

2. Wilfred Ndidi

The Leicester City midfielder has been brilliant for the Foxes so far this season in the EFL Championship.

Ndidi was recently named Skybet Player of the Month for September after scoring three assists and one goal.

He brought his outstanding performance to the Super Eagles and controlled the midfield for José Peseiro’s men against São Tomé and Príncipe.

The 26-year-old is expected to deliver an exceptional performance for Nigeria against Saudi Arabia.

3. Victor Boniface

The striker of Bayer Leverkusen won recognition both in the national team and in the club team.

The 22-year-old has scored seven goals for Bayer Leverkusen since leaving Union SG.

He is expected to bring his brilliant Bayer performance to the Super Eagles against Saudi Arabia.
