“At first, I was really nervous sharing the same pitch with the likes of (Kelechi) Iheanacho, (Wilfred) Ndidi, and Alex Iwobi because I didn’t know what to expect,” he said.

“ We then had two training sessions and I did well, so far everyone has been helpful.”
The 22-year-old striker also narrated getting a message on Whatsapp from coach Rohr after he had fired a hat-trick against Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1 and he had to take his time before he replied it.
