Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has been catching the eye at Ibrox over the last few months and now he’s doing it with Nigeria as well.

Particularly in the European qualifiers, we saw the ability Aribo has to break from deep, compose the play in the middle and arrive to score goals as well.

After only four minutes against Ukraine on his maiden Nigeria cap, Aribo introduced himself to the national side. And into the hearts of the Super Eagles fans too.


There’s been an outpouring of support for the gangly midfielder who clearly stole the show last night in a high-scoring 2-2 draw with Ukraine.

It’s been a superb start to Aribo’s Rangers career and the fact he’s being mentioned as a potential replacement for 73-cap Nigeria legend Jay-Jay Okocha shows just how much he caught the eye.

It’s an exciting time for Aribo with the games coming thick and fast at Ibrox as he embarks on an international career.
