Behold! Nigerian Goalscoring Defender in Europe

Rare gem of a defender...Nasiru Abdullahi beats a striker to the ball in a cup game in Cupa Romaniel

At a time when Nigerian attackers like Victor Osimhen, Victor Boniface, Taiwo Awoniyi, Ademola Lookman are painting European leagues with goals, another Nigerian defender is also scoring goals for his club in the same Europe.

That is the exploit of Nasiru Abdullahi in the colours of ACS Progesui of Romania, as the Nigerian is defining himself  as a defender, who does not only have the attributes of thwarting attackers, but can also be a  nightmare to the goalkeepers in the opposition.

Abdullahi was on the score sheet in the 2023 Cupa Romaniel game against Petrolui Piloesti, a Superliga side. Despite his team losing the game 1-2, the former Sunsel Fc player gave a good account of himself in the explosive game.

Abdullahi is currently the rave of the moment in Romania after scoring three goals in five appearance for his club in the Cupa Romaniel, a highly commendable feat for a defender, who is just 20 years old.

He was on target in the second round game against ACB Ineu and Soimii Lipova suffered same fate in the third round.

The great form of the central defender helped the Liga 3 side to qualify for the group stage after 24 years of participating in the competition.

The reliable defender has been very prominent in the line up of ACS Progesui, helpjng his team to the second position in group 8 log and there is no doubt that he is enjoying his loan deal from Uta Arad, another Super Liga side, with his breathtaking performance.

Standing at 6ft.4inches, with fantastic aaerial prowess and strong defensive abilities, it is very obvious that Abdullahi has all it takes to succeed in Europe, if he continues to work hard and remain focus.
