Nigerian Dickson Abiama's amazing story from amateur football to the Bundesliga in just three years

 From the lower tiers to the highest echelons of German football within three years? It is a modern football fairy tale story

"I didn't know what exactly I was doing," admits Dickson Abiama, still slightly incredulous, in an interview with GOAL and SPOX, when asked about May 23 this year.

On that occasion, the 23-year-old striker proved to be the hero of the day and perhaps the campaign, in the season finale of the 2.Bundesliga against Fortuna Duesseldorf when he scored to hand Greuther Fürth victory in the 83rd minute with a right-footed shot and thus into the Bundesliga, making himself immortal in the club’s ranks.

Abiama describes that Sunday afternoon as "pretty crazy". The same applies to the Nigerian's previous career, in just four years he advanced from a district level player to a Bundesliga player. It more or less seems like a fairy tale story.
