Nigerian wonder-kids making us proud! Super Eagles attackers Alex Iwobi (Arsenal FC) and Kelechi Iheanacho (Manchester City FC) are both making giant strides in England and have both made a feat as the first Nigerians to be nominated for UEFA’s Golden Boy Award, an award given to most promising teenage talent in Europe. Anthony Martial won the award last year and Raheem Sterling won it in 2014.Alex Iwobi


Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanchez and Manchester United starlet Marcus Rashford are also among the 40 nominated for the award.Image result for golden boy award

Arsenal’s Iwobi has made 17 league appearances and scored twice for the Gunners, raking up a large amount of assists while Man City’s Iheanacho has scored 10 Premier League goals from just 14 shots on target in 30 appearances. No African has ever won this award since it’s inception in 2003. Hopefully one of our youngsters will bring it home.
