 'We all work to be able to score' - Pacy Super Eagles star reacts after UCL goal for Porto

The UEFA Champions League reached the halfway point on Tuesday night in Group B, with Porto registering a hard-fought 2-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen at Estádio do Dragão.  

 

Porto were without a point to their name before hosting the visitors from Germany but have now climbed to second position in the group after their first win in this season's competition. 

 

After a goalless first half, Porto made a breakthrough in the 69th minute as the pacy Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi squeezed in a header after sprinting from inside his own half. 

 

Three minutes from time, Mehdi Taremi made another crucial contribution, setting up another substitute  Galeno to make sure Porto won the game. 

 

Sanusi,, whose powerful header provided Porto with a platform, highlighted the fact that the Dragons remain firm in the fight for qualification for the round of 16, 

 

"t was a very good victory for us, for our club and for our fans," Sanusi said to Porto's official website

 

"I am very grateful to have helped the team to win the three points. We all work to be able to score when there is an opportunity and today it was up to me. It was an important victory for us and it keeps us in the fight for qualification."

 

Sanusi's strike against Bayer Leverkusen was his second Champions League goal, having opened his goal scoring account in the competition against Marseille on November 25, 2020.
