While one Nigerian striker departed the Ligue 1, another appeared to be in the form of his life in the French top flight.

Ademola Lookman has now had a hand in seven goals for Fulham in the 2020-21 Premier League campaign, having found the net in the Cottagers 1-0 defeat of Sheffield United on Saturday.

Wilfred Ndidi is another house-hold name, whose impressiveness in midfield for Leicester City comes as no surprise these days.

Henry Onyekuru has enjoyed a brilliant start to life in his third spell in Turkey, but the Nigerian international was profligate in front of goal in Galatasaray’s 1-0 win at Alanyaspor.

Nigeria goalkeepers are doing well at all. There’s a big crisis in that department. Maduka Okoye made his 16th league appearance for Sparta Rotterdam in their clash against Ajax, but it was a night he wouldn’t want to remember as the Dutch champions put four past him.
