Ehizibue is currently ranked the third fastest player in the history of the German Bundesliga behind Borussia Dortmund's Achraf Hakimi (36.52 km) and Bayer Leverkusen's Moussa Diaby (35.95 km / h).

According to OPTA Sports, the Dutch-Nigerian recorded a speed of 35.85 km/h on matchday seven against Schalke - the fastest in the Bundesliga since records began before his record was broken by Hakimi.

One of the first names on Cologne's teamsheet, Ehizibue has been involved in 22 out of a possible 24 matches in this season's Bundesliga, of which 21 were starts, and missed the games against Hertha BSC and Eintracht Frankfurt due to suspension.

He is battling Ola Aina, Abdullahi Shehu and Chidozie Awaziem for a starting berth against the Leone Stars.
