Abdul Ajagun Makes Panathinaikos DebutNigeria Under 20 international skipper Abdul Ajagun made his unofficial debut for Greece powerhouse Panathinaikos last weekend in their exhibition match against Panachaiki.

20 - year - old Abdul Ajagun, who penned a four - year deal with The Greens last month, lasted the entire duration of Sunday's game which his team lost 2-1.

After the match, the attacking midfielder said that he was unhappy to lose on his debut, but hopes to make amends in future .

'' I'm happy because football is a team sport and teamwork. We were not good, it is certainly worth the defeat but definitely not worth the victory.

'' There friendly games help to determine defects and shortcomings to be corrected through training,'' gazzetta.gr quoted the former Dolphins star as saying.

Having proved his fitness in the test game, he could be selected for Panathinaikos' next game in the Super League against Platanias on September 15.

Ajagun said : '' I have long been with the team and I need a couple more weeks so I can say that I am ready to offer what you want.

''Beyond that is a matter of when the coach chooses to play me.''
