 Nigerian exports : Utaka still going strong at 37; Eze in red-hot form; Ajiboye, Jaiyesimi, Ibrahim score, regarded as the most reputable outlet on Nigerian players abroad, brings you the Nigeria-eligible players that found the net for their respective clubs in league matches across Europe and Asia on Saturday, August 28.

We begin in England. In a League One match between Charlton Athletic and Crewe Alexandra at the Valley, the home team won 2-0 with Diallang Jaiyesimi among the scorers.
The Norwich City academy product broke the deadlock nine minutes before half-time with a header, opening his account for the season in the process.

Still in the Football League but a division lower, David Ajiboye's goal just after the hour mark counted for nothing as Sutton United were beaten 2-1 by Oldham Athletic.

Ajiboye was in the right place to slot home the rebound at the second attempt after Craig Eastmond's effort hit the woodwork.

Emeka Eze's rich vein of form continued in the Turkish First League as Ankara Keciörengücü defeated Adanaspor 2-0.

He has either scored or assisted in the first three matches in the division after his headed goal gave Ankara Keciörengücü the lead three minutes after the interval.

In the Norwegian second-tier, Jerv beat Fredrikstad 3-2 at  J. J. Ugland Stadion Levermyr.

Shuaibu Ibrahim saw his sixth minute opener cancelled out by Taofeek Ismaheel at minute 19.

2013 U17 World Cup winner Saviour Godwin was the star of the show as Casa Pia thrashed Benfica B 4-2 in a Portuguese Segunda Liga clash at Estadio Pina Manique.

The winger found the net in the 30th, 55th and 74th minute - his first hat-trick for the club he joined last October.

Peter Utaka is still going strong at the age of 37. The former Super Eagles striker has directly participated in 20 goals (14 goals, 6 assists) from 24 appearances in this season's J2 League after getting on the scoresheet in the second half as Kyoto Sanga came from behind to secure a 3-1 win vs Tokyo Verdy at Kyoto Nishikyogoku Athletic Stadium.

Ten minutes after the restart, Utaka sprinted from inside his own half before blasting the ball into the net from just outside the box.
