The Gers 22 goals in the Europa League have come from different sources including the Nigerian trio
Flicks, defense-splitting passes, bullet headers, crosses, Rangers’ Nigerian trio have made their presence known in different forms in the Europa League this season.
Leon Balogun scored two fantastic headers on the road to the final, Joe Aribo was involved either directly or playing as a key cog in the route to most of the goals. Calvin Bassey was a rock at the back and when he had a chance to create a goal, he did it in a fashionable manner.
The Nigerian trio will all hope to be involved later tonight when the Gers play in their first European final since losing the then UEFA Cup final to Zenit St. Petersburg.
Having twice overcome German opposition this term including some of the strongest in the league in Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, Rangers are the underdogs against a solid Frankfurt team.
Their Nigerians have been splendid all season, and would look to achieve a huge step in their careers on Wednesday night in Seville. Should they emerge victorious, it will be the biggest achievements of their respective careers – which is near its twilight in Balogun’s case, just beginning in Bassey’s case and nearing its peak in the case of Aribo.
