Prince Nyong is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a winger for Togolese first division club AS Binah. Rated as one of the fastest rising prospects in Africa, he is known for his dribbling, speed, and finishing.
Nyong’s biggest strength is undoubtably his ability to drive past defenders with his pace and tricks. He solves every situation with ease fashion, using his creativity to evade defenders with unexpected moves. That makes the Nigerian ace very difficult to contain in one-on-ones, it’s not easy trying to separate the ball from him when in motion.
Prince Nyong also is not purely a vertical player. He’s one winger who’s willing to use half spaces and diagonal runs to his utmost advantage. He operates all round the pitch and often enters unexpected spaces to get past his opponent. Put simply, he even uses diagonal runs towards the center when driving down the left flank, one trait that’s not at all typical for right-footed players.
His electrifying pace is at above average, another advantage he has which helps him when dribbling. He plays his passes with lots of power but not too much (a special ability which is underrated in the world of football).
For Nyong, his weaker foot (left) isn’t an issue either. He has no problems with the high-speed style of football in African leagues, as his awareness and passing don’t suffer from a high pace. No wonder he’s been nicknamed as ‘Cheetah’ by his teammates as he possesses a special trait which is rarely attributed to African footballers especially wingers.
Currently with his team (AS Binah) at the ongoing playoff competition in Togo to determine the champions of the present season, Prince Nyong will face Gomido FC on Wednesday afternoon in their matchday six fixture. He ended the regular season with four assists from seven games he featured.
AS Binah currently sits at 4th on the competition’s standing with seven points from five games. They’re six points behind table toppers, ASKO Kara.
