Man City’s Kelechi Iheanacho and Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi have been included in the list of top 50 best football players under the age of 20 in Europe.
Metro UK compiled a list of the top 50 best youngsters in European leagues and the two wonder kids alongside two other Nigerian have made the list with Iwobi ranked 17th and Iheanacho ranked number 11 ahead of Man U’s Marcus Rashford.
“The Nigerian has already shown he has an eye for goal but his all-round game is very impressive too, ’’ George Bellshaw of Metro UK wrote.
“Often trusted ahead of the experienced Wilfried Bony, City rate Iheanacho very highly and Pep Guardiola will have no reservations about trusting him next season. ’
’“Iwobi made an excellent impact for The Gunners last season and forced himself in front of Theo Walcott in the pecking order.
“After pledging his international future to Nigeria, he could prove to be the one that got away for England in years to come.’’
Other Nigerians in the list include Chelsea’s Dominic Solanke and Tammy Abraham.
