• The Nigerian-born forward burst on to the scene in Switzerland with 17 goals in 28 second-tier appearances for Winterthur in 2009/10.

• Moved on loan to Grasshoppers, where he utilises his lightning pace as a central striker or right winger, for 2010/11.

• Starts the finals with four goals in three U21 matches, having only acquired a Swiss passport in October 2010; rewarded for his prolific form with a late cameo in Switzerland's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against England this month.
