Super Eagles Watch : Tony Nwakaeme, Aminu Umar, Onyekuru, Samuel Kalu On Target For Euro ClubsPublished: December 23, 2018
Round up of the Super Eagles players that were on target for their respective European clubs on Sunday, December 23.
At Medical Park Stadyumu, Anthony Nwakaeme enjoyed a monster outing for Trabzonspor in their 4-1 rout of Rizespor, having provided an assist and writing his name on the score-sheet for the second straight week.
The experienced striker led the way in attempted shots, dribbles and key passes for his team, and unselfishly passed the ball to Hugo Rodallega to score Trabzonspor's third goal in the 79th minute.
Umar Aminu gave Rizespor hope when he converted from a tight angle and reduced the arrears in the 84th minute but three minutes into injury time, Nwakaeme controlled the ball before blasting it past the goalkeeper to give Trabzonspor a 4-1 victory.
Still in Turkey, winger Henry Onyekuru helped Galatasaray record a 4-2 win vs Sivasspor at the Turk Telekom Stadyumu (İstanbul).
The Everton loanee netted in the 51st minute to take his tally for the season to five goals and it became six when he extended Galatasaray's lead on 69 minutes.
Over in France, Samuel Kalu's first goal in over three months helped Bordeaux secure a share of the spoils against Amiens at Matmut Atlantique.
The 21-year-old opened the scoring with his head in the 22nd minute but Eddy Gnahore restored parity three minutes from time.
