Ex Super Eagles Ace Akpoborie Speak On New Left Back Jamilu Collins After Watching Him Play For Paderborn


Former Super Eagles forward Jonathan Akpoborie says Paderborn Nigeria international defender Jamilu Collins is a solid player after watching the player live in action over the weekend in the German second division.


The 24 year old has emerged as the first choice option for Nigeria at left back after starring in back to back games for Nigeria in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers double header against Libya but some Nigerians were still skeptical of his abilities.

Many criticised the decision of coach Gernot Rohr to play the former Rijeka defender mainly due to the fact that he plays in the German second division but Akpoborie who played in the Bundesliga during his playing days holds a different opinion.

Akpoborie posted on his official twitter handle before the game that he will be at the stadium to watch Paderborn against Sandhausen and he particularly mentioned Collins as part of the reason why he is going to see the game.

Collins was on from start to finish for Paderborn in the game which ended 3-3 and his performance has been rated as solid by the Germany based ex Super Eagles ‎forward in his post shortly after the game.
