Just over some years ago, Abraham Marcus was playing youth football for Remo Stars.
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.
