Super Eagles Target Jordan Torunarigha Makes Team Of The Week In Germany


Hertha Berlin defender Jordan Torunarigha made the team of the week in the German Bundesliga for matchday 13 and he crowned it with another man of the match display to power his team to a 1-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in a matchday 14 game played yesterday.


21 year old Torunarigha scored one of the goals for Hertha Berlin last weekend when they defeated Hannover 96 away from home, stepped his game up once again against Eintracht Frankfurt and despite a nasty collision in the first half, he recovered to finish the game strongly.

Born in Germany to a Nigerian father Ojokojo, who works with the youth team of Hertha Berlin, he was offered the chance of making the Nigerian squad to the World Cup in Russia but he turned it down to focus on his career as a youth international for Germany.

Shortly after the game against Hannover 96 last week, he revealed to Germany based Nigerian journalist Oma Akatugba that he is still open to the idea of playing for Nigeria despite turning down the first approach from coach Gernot Rohr prior to the World Cup.
