Young Nigerian Midfielder With Bags Of Potential Scores Again For ChelseaPublished: September 14, 2018
Talented England youth international of Nigerian parentage, Faustino Anjorin, registered his name on the score-sheet as Chelsea recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Swansea City on game week five in the U18 Premier League on Friday afternoon.
Anjorin was the only Nigerian player in action for the Blues as fellow first-year scholar, Jordan Aina, was not in the traveling party to Wales.
The 16-year-old gave Chelsea the lead in the 11th minute, firing a low shot into the bottom corner and the visitors capitalized on their positive start when McClelland blasted home a rebound after a corner was headed on to the crossbar by Nunn in the 15th minute.
On 31 minutes, Daniel Williams' powerful shot from 25 yards out halved the deficit and both teams failed to score in the second half.
Anjorin's goal vs Swansea City was his third in the U18 Premier League this term, having found the net against Southampton and Leicester City.
The box-to-box midfielder won the top scorer award with two goals in the 12th edition of the Limoges Tournament in France this month.
