Strongest Nigerian Player Ever Hits Purple Patch In Front Of Goal For English League Two Side

Wycombe Wanderers 34 year old Nigerian forward Adebayo Akinfenwa scored twice to help them draw 2-2 against Accrington Stanley in a League Two game.

The goal continued his newly found vein of form in front of goal as it was his 6th goal from his last seven league games, his best run of form for a while.

Akinfenwa now has 10 goals this season from 30 games in League one, proving how lethal he is even at the twilight of a career that has seen him play for Northampton Town, Gillingham, AFC Wimbledon and Wycombe Wanderers.

Despite having never played in a division higher than League One in England, the striker is widely known all over the world thanks to his beast-like physique and enormous power. The 33-year-old can reportedly bench press 180kg – that’s nearly twice his own bodyweight. Such strength is virtually impossible to match in professional football, which is perhaps why he has previously been mistaken for an NFL star.
