Teen Nigeria-eligible Nnamdi Collins Continues To Make Waves At Dortmund, Now Playing With The Yellow Blacks A-team
Nigeria-eligible central defender Nnamdi Collins' star continues to rise as he has now been given the nod by Borrusia Dortmund's manager Lucien Favre to tie his bootlaces tighter and start playing with the A-team.
Two other teen prodigies were also included in the 31 named to participate in the team's training camp at Bad Ragaz in Switzerland and they are Youssoufa Moukoko, 15, and Ansgar Knauff, 18.

. and his selection is a testimony to the progress he has made in his career over the last year as he has yet to make his competitive debut for the U19 team.
His elevation is the equivalent to humping two classes.
Collins joined Borussia Dortmund from the youth team of Fortuna Düsseldorf in the summer of 2016 and as the Germany U16 captain scored an impressive 4 goals in 21 appearances in the B-Junioren Bundesliga West - despite being a defender.
It is expected that the coaches of both Die Mannscaft and Super Eagles are tracking his continued progress with keen interest.
