Highly-Rated Crystal Palace Nigerian Winger Scores In Comeback Game
Promising Nigerian winger Joseph Hungbo has made a successful return from injury, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

In his first match of the season, the Crystal Palace U23 star took only seven minutes to double his team's advantage in a Professional Development League match with local rivals Millwall on Monday.

Introduced in the 83rd minute, Hungbo reacted first to a rebounded ball before firing home a low strike.

The 18-year-old did not feature for the Eagles in their first ten games of the season after suffering a shoulder injury in a pre-season friendly against Bostik League Premier Division side Kingstonian three months ago.

He penned his first professional contract with Crystal Palace a month before he suffered the long-term injury.

Last season, Hungbo captained the U18 team and tallied 18 goals from 37 appearances for the U18s and U23s.

The set-piece expert is expected to get more minutes when Crystal Palace U23s host Colchester United next Monday following a successful return to action.
