Immanuel Francis Christopher: The Story of 17-year-old Nigerian Forward in Ukraine


In Ukraine, FC Elektron Romny is regarded as one of the most prolific when it comes to developing youngsters. 

Leaving Nasarawa United to join Ukraine side FC Elektron Romny at the age of 17, Immanuel Francis Christopher was one, and those choices appear to have paid dividends with the teenage forward becoming an integral part of both set-ups.
Born and raised in Aba, the youngster started playing at a young age in various local community clubs until he was scouted by the Nigerian lower league side Sia FC.


There, Christopher made a name for himself putting up impressive performances in the many games he featured in. His performance caught the eye of the Nigerian league outfit, Nasarawa.
Alex plays as a central forward with exceptional passing skill, ball control, composure and shooting power. He also plays the role of Supporting Striker.
” All my years in Ukraine, I have done my best to put up a good performance which has resulted in a lot of clubs chasing my signature prior to the Ukraine-Russia crisis, we all pray for a stable condition and we see how it goes”, the FC Elektron Romny told this news portal.


The youngster- who has suitors across Europe – was on the verge of joining a Ukraine topflight club.
