Five Goals in Eight Games – Is FC Zurich Stephen Odey The Hottest Nigerian Striker In Europe?


We are few games into the European season for the 2018/2019 season and as most Nigerian strikers are battling to find their scoring range, one has been impressive so far for Swiss side FC Zurich.


Former MFM FC boy wonder Stephen Odey struggled to make hay in his first season in Europe following his transfer in January but since the start of this season he has ‎turned into one of the stars of the team.

Already his goal tally in all competitions is the highest among all Nigerian players in Europe after six rounds of games and three cup games in Switzerland this season for Europa League campaigners FC Zurich.

The 20 year old boast of two goals in the league and three in the cup from the eight games he has played this season and the manner which he has been able to combine his pace, power and finishing has also caught the eyes.

Not known for his aerial prowess while playing in the Nigeria Profesional Football League few seasons ago, he has added that to his game and he is now comfortable playing as the lone striker for his club as witnessed in their 1-0 Europa League win over AEK Larnaca of Greece.

A senior international for Nigeria with one cap to his name, his recent form will no doubt put him in the frame to be considered for future call ups particularly if he continue his rich vein of form in front of goal.
