Belgian League Awards Excites Wilfred Ndidi


Super Eagles star, Ndidi Wilfred is in cloud nine after his amazing goal against Club Brugge in the 2015/2016 Belgian League was voted the best goal of the season.

At a colourful event organised to climax the league, the 19 -year-old scooped two awards after also finished second behind his teammate as the best young player in the Belgian league.

A member of the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup winning team said after receiving the award on Monday that it was the best moment of his career.

“I am really excited with the awards because this is the best moment of my career to have been considered among the best in the league. I won’t be carried away by this as I will continue to work hard for the team. It also means a lot of hard-work for me as I continue to lift my team. I have enjoyed myself playing in the Belgian league as well as donning the colours of Genk,” he said.

Ndidi made his debut for super Eagles under coach Sunday Oliseh while he has been called for the Super Eagles holding this weekend.

The former Nath Boys FC player made his Belgian League debut with Genk on January 31, 2015 against Charleroi in a 1-0 away defeat. He played the first 74 minutes of the game, before being substituted.
