Werder Bremen star Justin Gideon Njinmah contemplates Super Eagles call-up amid Bundesliga success

Justin Gideon Njinmah, the promising center forward for Werder Bremen, has emerged as a player of interest both domestically and internationally, igniting discussions about his future in the footballing world.

Having showcased his skills during a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund, where he netted an impressive eighteen goals across two seasons in the third division, Njinmah returned to Werder Bremen with renewed determination.

Born in Germany but proudly of Nigerian descent, the 23-year-old striker has yet to represent either nation at the international level. However, with his consistent performances in the Bundesliga, Njinmah has caught the eye of both German and Nigerian football authorities.

Despite facing tough competition from established German forwards like Timo Werner and Serge Gnabry, as reported by Sports Bild, discussions with the Deutscher Fußball-Bund hint at the possibility of a national team slot for Njinmah. Meanwhile, Nigeria offers another avenue for his international aspirations, although the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Victor Osimhen present formidable challenges.

Undeterred by the competition, Njinmah remains focused on his goals, expressing gratitude for the consideration by Nigeria and affirming his commitment to impressing the national team selectors. Reflecting on the motivation such recognition brings, Njinmah acknowledges the importance of continued improvement in his game.

As Werder Bremen seeks to tie down their budding talent to a new deal, Njinmah’s contributions on the field continue to bolster their campaign. With aspirations for European qualification, the club finds itself in a competitive position, currently sitting 8th on the Bundesliga table, just four points shy of the coveted sixth place.

In the midst of this exciting journey, Justin Gideon Njinmah stands at a crossroads, poised to make his mark on both club and country, with his eyes set firmly on a bright future in football.

He said in a recent interview: “Nick Woltemade showed me in the dressing room that that was in the article. When you hear that you’re on the national team’s list and they notice you, it motivates every player to keep going and get even better. If you continue to improve now, it might not be as far off as you always imagined,” Njinmah said in quotes revealed by Sports Bild.
