Watch performances that earned Abraham Marcus a first Super Eagles call-up
Just over some years ago, Abraham Marcus was playing youth football for Remo Stars in the Nigeria professional football league.
The dynamic playmaker could make his proud Super Eagles debut next month, with a friendly against Cameroon to come for Gernot Rohr’s side.
With this in mind, we look at three of Marcus’ top performances that have resulted in his first international call-up…
1. 24/04/21 Leixões 1-4 Feirense
A truly shocking result at Estádio do Mar (Matosinhos) saw Leixões absolutely trounced by the Feirense. Marcus bagged a brace. It was a man-of-the-match performance which all-but justified the hype.
2. 17/01/21 Feirense 2-0 Porto II
Marcus stamped his authority at Estádio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira) when FC Porto II were guests.
The former Remo Stars man stole the show with a classy strike.
3. 19/12/20 Varzim 0-2 Feirense
Six days to Christmas, a busy Marcus showed his worth in more than just dribbling when Feirense won at Varzim. He contributed one goal to the 2-0 victory.
