Unfortunately for Rudigier, Germany drew the game 2-2. But after the game, the Real Madrid star revealed that he drew inspiration from Boniface.
Unfortunately for the Super Eagles star, he was unable to showcase his goal celebration during the international break because he did not score.
Nonetheless, he would be looking to return to his scoring form at Bayer Leverkusen when they play Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
