Just three months since joining Bayer Leverkusen, the 22-year-old Nigerian already has 17 goals contributions (11 goals and six assists).

His impressive statistics for goal contributions is only bettered by Kane, who has 28 goal contributions (21 goals and seven assists), Haaland with 21 (17 goals and four assists) and Guirassy, who also boasts an impressive 18 goal contributions (16 goals and two assists).

However, only Kane has more assists than Boniface among all the players.

Boniface has been instrumental to Die Werkself’s impressive start to the season as they currently sit top of the Bundesliga table after match day 11, winning 10 of their games while drawing only one.

Jointly occupying the fifth position on the goals contributions chart are Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham who has 13 goals and three assists and Kylian Mbappe with 15 goals and one assist across all competitions.

Boniface’s fine performance has not been limited to his club’s side.

The striker made his debut for the Super Eagles during the 2023 AFCON qualifier against São Tomé and Principe in September. In that game, he showcased his skills by delivering an assist for Samuel Chukwueze, contributing to Nigeria’s resounding 6-0 victory.

In a splendid follow-up, he made his first start for the Eagles in the 2-2 international friendly against Saudi Arabia in Portugal.
