USL Championship club FC Tulsa have announced the signing of Nigerian duo Mfon Udoh and Solomon Kwambe to its 2020 roster, pending league and federation approval.
The duo joins Raphael Ayagwa as the only three active players in the USL Championship with Nigerian national team experience.
Udoh, 27, brings an impressive goalscoring pedigree from the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).
The forward is the only player in league history to score more than 20 goals in a season and his single-season record of 23, set in 2014, still stands.
In 2019, Udoh became the only player to top the NPFL scoring charts in two different seasons when he scored 10 goals to co-lead the league.
Like Udoh, Kwambe has spent his domestic career playing in the NPFL, primarily with Lobi Stars F.C.
A player always looked at as loaded with potential, Kwambe was included on Young African Player to Watch lists in 2013 that also included Liverpool FC superstar Mohammed Salah and reigning USL Championship Golden Boot winner Solomon Asante.
That potential translated for Kwambe into 18 appearances for Nigeria on the international stage including caps in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying and 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying
