Over the years Nigeria has provided many exciting footballers such as Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Nwakwo Kanu, Sunday Oliseh, Obafemi Martins, Osaze Odemwingie, Kelechi Iheanacho to mention a few.

5. Kingsley Michael (Bologna)

Kingsley Michael is one of the Nigeria U17 squad that won the tournament in Chile.

the 17 year old has signed a pre-contract with the Italian Serie A club and will sign a professional deal when he is 18 on August 26, 2017.

4. Chidozie Awaziem (FC Porto)

Chidozie Awaziem is the only defender to appear on the list and one just as well-known for his rapid rise to stardom as his performances for FC Porto this season has been superb.

Spotted from El-Kanemi Warriors last season, Portuguese giants Porto took a punt on bringing the defender to Europe.

Now a regular starter at the Stadio Dragao, the 19-year-old has much room for improvement but has incredible potential and the physicality to have a strong career. He has made nine appearances this season, scoring once in Porto’s 2-0 win over Gil Vicente in the Taça da Liga competition.
