Goals For Isaac Success, Josh Maja, Ify Ofoegbu & Okenabirhie In Pre-Season GamesCatch up on the Nigerian players who found the back of the net for their respective European clubs in pre-season games on Saturday 21st July.

At the Montgomery Waters Meadow, Shrewsbury Town new signing, Fejiri Okenabirhie was yet again on the score-sheet for The Blues in a 3-2 loss to Brentford.

The former Arsenal youth teamer made the most of a lofted pass into the area to smash home his chance in the top left corner of the goal, bringing the score to 1-1 after they had initially fell behind.

Elsewhere, 18-year old right-back, Ifeanyi Ofoegbu got among the goals for Chesterfield in their 5-0 rout of Nuneaton at the Liberty Way Stadium.

The defender who was picked out in the box by teammate, Joe Rowley with 15 minutes left finished with aplomb, rattling into the roof of the net to make it 4-0.

In another pre-season encounter, goals from Super Eagles striker, Isaac Success, Troy Deeney and Jerome Sinclair gave Premier League side, Watford a 3-1 victory over German club, Fortuna Düsseldorf in Bürgerau.

The Nigerian tapped home the opener for The Hornets after getting onto the end of an Andre Gray's pass at the far post.

And finally, Joshua Maja netted a brace for Sunderland in a 6-0 rout of Scottish opponents, St Mirren at Paisley.

The teenager opened the scoring after 22 minutes, sending a well-cushioned finish in thanks to a pass from Chris Maguire before leaving Mirren goalkeeper, Craig Samson rooted to the spot when he arrowed in a 22-yard effort for his second.
