Udogie's experience capital in official matches is 26.4, while he has logged 2,763 minutes between December 13, 2021 and the same date in 2022.
The top ten most promising two-way left-backs are Nuno Mendes (Paris St-Germain), Udogie, Aaron Hickey (Brentford), Milos Kerkez (AZ Alkmaar), Omar Campos (Santos Laguna), Jhoanner Chávez (Independiente del Valle), Victor Kristiansen (FC København), Pedrinho Azevedo (Athletico Paranaense), Jimer Fory (Deportivo Pereira) and Doron Leidner (Olympiacos).
