Official : Chelsea Loanee Tomori Finally Credited With First Professional Goal For Derby CountyPublished: August 17, 2018
Chelsea's Nigerian defender Fikayo Tomori has finally been credited with his first ever professional goal for Derby County, the organizers of the Carabao Cup, the EFL informed on Friday.
Derby County's first goal in Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Oldham Athletic was initially awarded as an own goal by Sam Graham by several media outlets but The Rams contacted the EFL over the goal confusion.
Tomori profited from a Harry Wilson delivery to steer home in the first half, and it was earlier reported that Graham had the last touch, but the Dubious Goals Committee has decided to officially credit the goal to the England U21 star after reviewing the footage.
Last season, the center back thought he had scored his first senior goal in Hull City's 5-5 draw against Bristol City when his downward header hit the woodwork onto goalkeeper Frank Fielding and into the net but the goal eventually went down as an own goal.
As a result of the ruling by the Dubious Goals Committee, it means Tomori netted his first career goal in his 39th game as a professional.
The 20-year-old has scored eight goals in total for Chelsea U18, U19 and U23 teams.
