Super Eagles: Victor Boniface following the footsteps of Man City star Erling Haaland

The 22-year-old only recently joined Bayer Leverkusen from Belgian Pro League side Union Saint-Gilloise and has already established himself as one of the key players in the competition.

His form has also earned him his first Super Eagles appearance, with the Akure-born striker coming on to register an assist in Nigeria’s 6-0 demolition of Sao Tome and Principe.

Boniface has taken to life in the Bundesliga with ease, scoring three goals in as many games. His performance has helped Xabi Alonso’s side maintain a 100 per cent record that has kept Die Werkself as league leader.
