George Ilenikhena Winning Big In Belgium Pro-League | Fab.ng

Nigeria has a long history of producing players with extraordinary talent, and 17-year-old forward George Ilenikhena is the most recent star to emerge. In the Belgium Pro League, he’s rapidly becoming known, following in the footsteps of legendary striker Romelu Lukaku, who had a big impact as a teenager.

Lagos native George Ilenikhena, who plays alongside teammates Chidera Ejuke and Alhassan Yusuf on the pitch, has been an important member of Pro League champion Royal Antwerp. With his goal-scoring ability, Ilenikhena is lighting up the league, much like his predecessors Paul Onuachu and Gift Orban did.

During the summer transfer window, this young talent moved from French team Amiens to Antwerp. Although he had to get used to a new atmosphere during his first few days at the club, his recent performance shows that he’s already proving to be a fantastic addition. Remarkably, he scored in two straight games—one at Charleroi, Osimhen’s old team, and the other against Club Brugge barely a week later.

The timing of Ilenikhena’s accomplishment is what makes it so amazing. He’s mimicking one of the best strikers in the world, Romelu Lukaku, who was the last player younger than him to score in back-to-back Belgian Pro League games—Lukaku did so at 16 years and 312 days—at the age of 17 years and 74 days, according to OptaJohan.

The amazing thing is that, because of his early relocation to France at the age of three and his football training in French academies, George Ilenikhena is qualified to play for both France and the Super Eagles, the national team of Nigeria. His ability has also been noticed by the French Football Federation (FFF), which called him up for the French U-16 team alongside other gifted players like Warren Zaire-Emery of PSG. TransferMarkt reported that despite receiving the call-up, he has not yet played for the French team.

Nigeria’s roster has an abundance of forward options due to their dual eligibility, with many talented players sitting on the bench. Ilenikhena hasn’t decided on a national team yet, but the Super Eagles won’t likely be overly concerned about losing this promising young talent. George Ilenikhena’s journey from Lagos to Belgium’s Pro League and his record-breaking performances are a testament to the continued excellence of Nigerian football talent.

Taiwo Awoniyi Sets A Premier League Record

Taiwo Awoniyi Sets A Premier League Record | Fab.ng

Nigeria’s star striker, Taiwo Awoniyi, has etched his name in the English Premier League history books. He recently claimed the coveted title of “Highest Shot Conversion Rate” since the previous season commenced. His impressive feat has turned heads across the league, solidifying his position as a player to watch.

Taiwo Awoniyi, the Nigerian striker, is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest from Liverpool.

Despite being sidelined for 12 games due to injuries, he has delivered an impressive performance on the pitch.

In fact, his performance has surpassed that of other well-known players. One of the players is Erling Haaland, the Norwegian striker who currently plays for Borussia Dortmund. Others include Hee-Chan Hwang from RB Leipzig, Callum Wilson from Newcastle United, Diogo Jota from Liverpool, and Ivan Toney from Brentford.

Taiwo Awoniyi is currently firing on all cylinders. Reports reveal a remarkable shot conversion rate of 28.6%. This shot conversion exceeds even the prolific Erling Haaland of Manchester City, whose rate sits at 26.1%.

What makes this feat even more impressive? While Haaland boasts a higher total of 52 goals since last season, Awoniyi has achieved his success with just 16 goals. This means he’s making the most of his chances, converting them into goals at a rate that surpasses even some of the league’s top scorers.

Following his triumphant return from injury, Taiwo Awoniyi has been on a tear for Nottingham Forest. He has netted twice in his last five matches. His crucial opening goal in the 2-0 triumph over West Ham United proved instrumental in propelling the team further away from the dreaded relegation zone.

While his dream of representing Nigeria at the 2023 AFCON tournament may have been put on hold, Taiwo Awoniyi’s unwavering commitment to his club is evident.

As the team gears up for a Premier League clash against Aston Villa, all eyes will be glued to Awoniyi. Football stans are eager to see if he can maintain his exceptional form.
