Nigerian football star Bright Dike has carved a niche for himself all because of his footballing skills. He was capped by Nigeria at international level.

He played for Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Indiana Invaders, Portland Timbers, Los Angeles Blues, Toronto FC, San Antonio Scorpions, Amkar Perm and Pahang FA before retirement.

The family has always been in the news because of their active involvements in football.

Bright Dike’s sister Courtney is also a striker, who played for Falconets at the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Well, there is another sibling of Dike who earns his money as a striker. His name is Daryl Dike.

Meeting him for the first time, one thing that will come to mind is that he is a brother of Bright Dike.

Born in Edmond, Oklahoma the striker is an explosive lad who stands at 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m). He is a 20-year-old lad on loan at Barnsley from Orlando City.

Daryl Dike had his football education at Oklahoma FC and Virginia Cavaliers.

The powerful striker who shares similarities with Bright scored a double for Barnsley against Wycombe Wanderers in the English Championship tonight.

At international level, he made his debut for the United States on January 31, 2021, as a 65th-minute substitute for Paul Arriola in a 7–0 friendly win over Trinidad and Tobago. This means that striker is still eligible to play for Nigeria.
