Three Super Eagles stars have been ranked the best three Nigerian football players in Europe over the last six months by the CIES Football Observatory.

The Switzerland-based football research group valued players in Europe’s top five leagues on a match-by-match basis, by taking into account the pitch production and proficiency at both individual and collective level.

Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi, Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze and Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi were the highest-ranked Nigerian players.

The three players were key members of the Super Eagles squad that finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and with the exception of Chukwueze, they were utilized in every single game.
