Nigeria World Cup star Chiejine dies at 36

Former Nigeria Super Falcons footballer Ifeanyi Chiejine has died in Lagos at the age of 36.

Sources told ESPN that Chiejine, the youngest member of Nigeria's class of '99, the team which shone by reaching the quarter finals of the FIFA Women's World Cup that year, had been ill for months, but cause of death is as yet unknown.

"This is huge shock. We had no idea that she was sick," NFF General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi said in a statement.

"Ifeanyi was one of the most naturally gifted players to...

Kelechi Iheanacho's Redemption Season is not going according to plan

As time wound down in Leicester City's second league game of the new Premier League season, a 1-1 draw with Frank Lampard's regenerating Chelsea, the camera panned to the Foxes bench, catching Kelechi Iheanacho with a forlorn gaze plastered across his visage.

For the second match in a row, the Nigerian sat for 90 minutes as his teammates sweated it out on the pitch, eking out a hard fought draw at a difficult ground. He didn't even crack the nod to help out at the end.

Can Nigeria's Victor Osimhen cauterise Lille's Pepe-shaped wound?

It took Victor Osimhen all of 19 minutes to not only announce his arrival to Ligue 1, but to throw down the gauntlet to any and all competitors for the Nigeria number 9 jersey.

And what a way to make that announcement for the new Lille man, who bagged a brace against FC Nantes in their season opener on the weekend. Nicolas Pepe... who?

For the first goal, Jose Fonte's hoofed clearance all the way from the back looked anything but dangerous, especially as Osimhen was sandwiched between two defenders....

Alex Iwobi's Everton move is a step down, but ensures his Nigeria place

At £40 million, Alex Iwobi's Deadline Day move from boyhood club Arsenal to Everton has made him the most expensive Nigerian transfer ever, and saved the Super Eagles from an embarrassingly quiet window.

Finally, a Nigerian has cracked into the top 10 of all-time most expensive African transfers. Iwobi moved into sixth spot, pushing Egypt's Mohamed Salah (£36.9m) down to seventh. It was a rare Nigerian big-ticket move this offseason.

It is perhaps a reflection of the current state of the...

Nigeria footballers must learn from Chukwueze's Roc Nation deal

Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze's deal with music mogul Jay-Z's Roc Nation management company has catapulted the Nigeria player, only recently a bench warmer, into the spotlight.

At the recent Africa Cup of Nations, Chukwueze shoved his way into the starting line-up after sitting behind the likes of Moses Simon and Samuel Kalu, going on to star against South Africa in the round of 16, and forming a key part of the Super Eagles' bronze-winning campaign.

This, along with efforts for his club in...
