Super Eagles’ defender, Omeruo names Real Madrid star as toughest striker he has faced



Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has named Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, as the toughest striker he has ever played against.

Omeruo faced Benzema earlier this season, as Leganes lost 5-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Benzema scored once and provided two assists during the LaLiga game.

The 26-year-old has also faced Lionel Messi in Spain, but singled out the Benzema because of his positioning.

“Benzema. It’s not only because he is a good goalscorer, but he works hard and he is difficult to mark because of his positioning,” Omeruo told AS.
