Victor Osimhen, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Dennis Emmanuel have helped Nigeria to set a unique Europe top league record after remarkable goalscoring form.

All three Super Eagles strikers who are currently leading their various clubs have set a record only equaled by Portugal this season.

Taiwo Awoniyi scored his 13th Bundesliga goal over the weekend becoming just the first Union Berlin player to score 13 league goals in a single season.

Emmanuel Dennis was also on target over the weekend scoring his 10th league goal becoming just the 8th Nigerian player to score 10 or more goals in a single Premier League season.

Victor Osimhen also has 11 league goals for Napoli in the Italian Serie A.
