Nigeria youth international Chidera Ezeh is pulling his weight at FC Porto slowly navigating his way to the first team with impressive performances for the U-19.

Ever present for the youth side of Porto who are presently third after five games in the U-19 league in Portugal, he was once again one of their best legs against their counterparts from Benfica.

He twice came close to opening the scoring for the team missing their best chance in the first half as well as in the second half before they finally got the breakthrough their dominance deserves via the spot.

Already he has scored once for the team and the slick forward who recently signed professional terms with the Portuguese giants is heavily tipped to make a step up to the B team next season.

18 year old Ezeh was part of the Nigeria U-17 team that won the world cup in 2013 and made the U-20 team to the last World cup in New Zealand but didn’t get to play as Nigeria crashed out in the round of 16.
