Arsenal Product Akpom Scores Brilliant Bicycle Kick As PAOK Win The Double In GreecePublished: May 12, 2019
Chuba Akpom helped PAOK win the Greek Cup on Saturday after netting the game-winner in a 1-0 win against AEK Athens at the Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis.
Thirty five minutes into the contest, Akpom came close to breaking the deadlock with a shot on the turn from inside the area but his effort was punched away by goalkeeper Vassilis Barkas.
One minute into first-half stoppage time, the former Arsenal striker beat the keeper with a quasi-bicycle kick.
Unlike in the first half, both teams had few chances in the second stanza and PAOK held on to win their first double in Greece.
Thanks to his match winner, Akpom was named the most Valuable Player of the Greek Cup final.
The 23-year-old ended the 2018-2019 season with eight goals in 33 appearances in all competitions.
Though the London-born striker has pledged his international future to Nigeria and even trained with the Super Eagles in March 2017, he has not been called up to the national team for an official match.
