Nico Jackson, the scoring sensation
Nico Jackson, the scoring sensation

The Senegalese striker has netted 5 goals in his last 6 games for Villarreal

Nico Jackson is on the up. The African striker, who was brought into the first team at the start of the season to bolster the Yellows’ forward line after a successful spell in the Yellows’ B team, is in splendid form after scoring five goals in his last six games in the yellow jersey.

The five goals have also been extremely important in the Submarine’s results: he scored in the victory over Real Sociedad (2-0), put the Yellows ahead again in the win against RCD Espanyol (4-2), scored a brace in 12 minutes against RC Celta (3-1) and put the Yellows ahead with a spectacular volley in the draw at Mestalla (1-1).

In addition, Jackson has, among the U21 strikers with more than 500 minutes in the 5 big leagues, the fourth best scoring average with 0.49 goals per game, the fifth highest efficiency with 21% and is the third highest contributor of goals and assists with 0.63 per game.

It is worth remembering that, thanks to his good work and growth, the Yellows No.15 played with the Senegal national team at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
