Nigeria's Ejuke wants to make his mark at Ajax... by beating them

Nwankwo Kanu, Finidi George, Sunday Oliseh, and Tijani Babangida are four famous Nigerians who made their marks at Amsterdam ArenA, and Chidera Ejuke wants to do the same... but not for Ajax, for Heerenveen.

While the four Super Eagles legends played for the home side, with Kanu and Finidi helping them to UEFA Champions League titles, 21-year-old Ejuke has little by way of credentials.

Joe Aribo puts Old Firm Derby on Nigeria's radar

As rivalries go, the Old Firm Derby is one of the biggest in the world, but it's not one that Nigerian fans have paid much attention to... until now.

Glasgow Rangers will take on bitter rivals Celtic at Ibrox on Sunday, and Joe Aribo, a recent Super Eagles call-up, will don the blue kit in a rare instance of Nigerian-as-Ranger.
