The Super Eagles have many talented players in European leagues, and one of them has been recognised for his dribbling skills
Nigerian winger Chidera Ejuke is the third-best dribbler in the world, according to CIES Football Observatory latest rankings.
The group, which rates and values players based on statistical evidence, ranked Ejuke in third place behind Adama Traore and Nahuel Luján.
Players from 33 leagues worldwide were ranked, and only the ones that have completed 40 dribbles in the 2021/2022 season were considered.
Ejuke, who is the new darling of Super Eagles fans, has an overall score of 9.3 behind Luján (9.7) and Traore (11.2).
The Nigerian’s position is not a surprise as he is known for his quick feet, which enables him to move past opposition defences like a hot knife through butter.
He recently caught the eye of many Nigerians in the Super Eagles 2-0 win over the Central African Republic last month.
The CSKA Moscow winger is also known for his dribbling skills, and he is the seventh-fastest player in the newly released FIFA 22.
Ejuke has scored four goals and registered two assists in 13 games for CSKA this season.
