Super Eagles left back Jamilu Collins will have the opportunity test himself against the big boys in the German Bundesliga next season following SC Paderborn‘s promotion to the elite division on Sunday.
Paderbon lost 3-1 away to Dynamo Dresden but their promotion was secured after Union Berlin failed to win against VFL Bochum .
Bochum was trailing Paderbon with just a single point going into the game, but has inferior goals difference, which means only a win and a defeat of Paderbon will guarantee their promotion to the Bundesliga.
However Union Berlin could only manage to draw 2-2 at Bochum, which means both teams finished the season with 57 points, but Paderborn secured the promotion on superior goal difference advantage.
Paderborn are returning to the Bundesliga since the 2014/2015 season.
It is a great year for Collins who will also be making his African Cup of Nations debut with the Super Eagles Egypt later this year.
