Nigerian exports : Chukwueze scores against Real Madrid, Lookman simply unstoppable, Amutu super-sub's review of the Nigerian players that found the net for their respective foreign clubs in competitive matches on Thursday, January 19, 2023. 


Starting in Italy, Super Eagles winger Ademola Lookman is having his best season as a professional in terms of goals scored. 


The Charlton Athletic academy product netted a brace for the second consecutive game as Atalanta thrashed Spezia Calcio 5-2 in a Coppa Italia clash at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo to book their quarterfinal ticket. 


Lookman got them on their way when he stole in at the back post and poked in Giorgio Scalvini’s header from a corner in the tenth minute and doubled the advantage two minutes later with a right footed shot after exchanging passes with Duván Zapata.


His brace against Spezia took his tally to eleven goals in all competitions - the first time he has managed double digits in a single season. 


Villarreal have been knocked out of the Copa del Rey in the round of 16 after throwing away a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to Real Madrid at Estadio de la Cerámica.


Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze finished with aplomb into the top corner to make it 2-0 in the 42nd minute. 


The 2015 U17 World Cup winner now has fifteen goal involvements this season (8 goals, 7 assists) from 27 all-competition appearances. 


In the Egyptian Premier League, Austin Amutu came off the bench to score the game-winning goal as Al-Ittihad Al-Sakandary came from behind to beat National Bank of Egypt 3-2. 


Amutu netted his third of the season in the 89th minute, nine minutes after entering the game as a substitute.
