This is an incredible achievement for a football player that’s only 19. Also helping his team by scoring in the CAF Confederations Cup, Malam is set for a very bright future and it’s only a matter of time until the big teams in Europe will scout him. 2020 brought a big change in Malam’s style of play as well.
