By Milcah Tanimu

Amidst the recent spotlight on Bayer Leverkusen’s success, one name has quietly emerged as a rising star in the Bundesliga – Justin Gideon Njinmah of Werder Bremen.

While Leverkusen’s prominent figures dominate headlines, Njinmah’s journey from academy football to the Bundesliga has been remarkable. Born in Hamburg, Germany, to Nigerian parents, Njinmah’s talent was evident from a young age. His impressive goal-scoring record for Werder Bremen’s reserve team earned him a professional contract and subsequent loan spell at Borussia Dortmund’s B team.

Njinmah’s prolific goal-scoring exploits in the lower leagues caught the attention of Dortmund’s first team, leading to his Bundesliga debut in 2022. Despite Dortmund’s interest in retaining him, Werder Bremen recalled their promising talent for the 2023-2024 season, where Njinmah has thrived with notable goals and contributions to his team’s success.

Described as fleet-footed and versatile, Njinmah’s style of play allows him to excel as a forward or winger. His potential has not gone unnoticed internationally, with both Nigeria and Germany vying for his allegiance. While Nigeria boasts a wealth of attacking talent, Germany offers a competitive football environment with numerous options.

As Njinmah contemplates his international future, patience and focus on his on-field performance will be crucial. Ultimately, the decision rests with him, and his footballing journey will shape his destiny.

The question remains: Should Justin Njinmah represent Germany or Nigeria?
