Nigerians Abroad : Rizespor's Umar, Maccabi Tel Aviv's Ofoedu, Poli Iasi's Omoh Find The Net
Allnigeriasoccer.com's round-up of the Nigerian players on target for the respective UEFA-affiliated clubs in league matches on Monday, February 24.

In a Turkish Super Lig clash at Caykur Didi Stadyumu, Rizespor fell to a 2-1 defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir, with Nigeria international Aminu Umar getting on the scoresheet for the home team.

Umar leveled matters on the hour mark, taking his tally to three goals from ten games in the process for Rizespor, who are only four points above the drop zone.

Let's go to Israel. Former Enugu Rangers striker Chikeluba Ofoedu is just one goal shy of hitting double figures for goals after increasing his tally to nine as Maccabi Tel Aviv registered an impressive 3-0 win in a derby against Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Chico wrapped up the scoring in the 70th minute. The number 10 is Maccabi Tel Aviv's second highest goalscorer in the Israeli Ligat Haal and only three players have scored more goals than him in the division this term.

Finally, Michael Omoh celebrated another goal for his new club in Romania, FC Politehnica Iasi, three weeks after netting on his debut.

The versatile winger opened the scoring after thirty minutes in a 2-1 loss to FC Botosani at Stadionul Municipal.
