Irish-Nigerian teenager in the running for West Ham United Goal of the Month
Voting is now open for West Ham United's Goal of the Month award for November 2021 and a player of Nigerian descent, Armstrong Okoflex is in contention for the accolade.

Six goals from the first team, Women's team and development squad have been nominated.

Okoflex has made the shortlist for his goal in West Ham's 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on November 1.

The 19-year-old is battling first team stars Saïd Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals for the prize and completing the nominees are Dagný Brynjarsdóttir and Sonny Perkins.

Against Leicester City in the Premier League 2,  Okoflex side-footed in an impressive first-time finish from inside the box to open the scoring in the eighth minute.

In his most recent game for the Hammers youth teams, the Irish-Nigerian starlet enhanced his burgeoning reputation by bagging his second hat-trick of the season against Crystal Palace U23s.
