Jude Ikechukwu Nworuh (born 9 June 1989 in Lagos) is a Nigerian professional football forward, who currently plays for the Danish Superliga side AC Horsens. Nworuh is a very fast young striker, who has spent his entire professional career in Denmark.

He began his career at F.C. Ebedei in Lagos, Nigeria, which is the former youth team of Obafemi Martins and many other successful Nigerian footballers. He was a top scorer at F.C. Ebedei, which led to a move to the Danish Club, Midtjylland, who at the time were scouting heavily in Nigeria.

He played his first UEFA Cup game in 2008, and featured again in the UEFA Europa League (name change) in 2011.[1]

He was loaned out to Fredericia to get more playing time and then on 4 September 2012 he signed a contract with AC Horsens. He has been a consistent scorer for AC Horsens, and has been their highest goalscorer every season after his first season with them.

Injury[edit]

On 20 September 2008 he was injured during a match, resulting in a skull fracture. He was operated later that night in Aarhus, and made a full recover.
