Nigerian exports: Lookman takes Super Eagles form to club; ex-Chelsea schoolboy strikes;  Michael on fire & more's comprehensive review of the Nigerian players that found the back of the net for their respective foreign clubs in league matches on Sunday, September 17, 2023.


In the Italian Serie A, Ademola Lookman brought his national team form to Atalanta as he opened his account for the season in a 3-2 loss to Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.


Lookman smashed the ball into the bottom corner in the 53rd minute to make it 2-2. 


The former Everton and Fulham man scored and provided an assist in the Super Eagles' 6-0 rout of São Tomé and Príncipe a week ago.


In the Czech Liga, Victor Olatunji closed the scoring as Sparta Prague registered a convincing 5-0 win over Slovacko, taking his account for the season to three goals in nine matches for his new employer.


Nine minutes from time, the Sparta Prague number 7 planted a downward header past the goalkeeper - his first goal in the league since his summer move. 


Remaining in the Czech Republic, Rafiu Durosinmi continued his rich vein of form for Viktoria Plzeň, scoring an 8-minute brace and also providing an assist in their 7-1 demolition of Zlin.


After providing the assist for Viktoria Plzeň's third goal, Durosinmi tapped home in the 49th minute and scored his second of the game in the 57th minute when he headed in a delivery from Sampson Dweh. 


The 20-year-old has directly participated in 10 goals (6 goals, 4 assists) in 13 games across all competitions this term.


Ohi Omoijuanfo's purple patch continued with his third goal in as many games in Brondby's 3-0 road win against AGF in the Danish Superliga. 


Five minutes before halftime, the Norwegian-Nigerian center forward doubled his team's advantage 


Free-scoring center forward Mathias Oyewusi scored twice as FK Zalgiris Vilnius thrashed FK Riteriai 6-2 in a Lithuanian A Lyga tie staged at LFF stadionas.


Oyewusi outpaced his markers, raced through on goal and rounded the goalkeeper before slotting the ball into the net in the 61st minute to make it 4-2 and increased his side's lead three minutes later when he unleashed  a powerful strike into the corner.


The 24-year-old has mustered nineteen goals in 25 league games in the 2023 season. 


In the German 2. Bundesliga, former Chelsea schoolboy Oladapo Afolayan opened his league account as St Pauli hammered Holstein Kiel 5-1 at the Millerntor-Stadion.


Afolayan celebrated his first league goal since May after smacking the ball into the bottom right corner to give St Pauli a 3-0 lead in the 38th minute. 


A goal in the first minute of first half stoppage time from Geoffrey Chinedu helped FK Radnicki 1923 Kragujevac seal their first win of the season in the Serbian Superliga. 


Chinedu missed an open goal from less than two meters five minutes into the game but atoned for his gaffe by opening the scoring just before halftime. 


Peter Godly Michael netted for the fifth game in a row as Vaasan Palloseura earned a 2-0 road win over Kuopion Palloseura in a Finnish Veikkausliiga clash at Väre Areena


At minute 27, Michael took possession of the ball and placed it in the lower right corner and doubled the advantage in the 89th minute when he controlled the ball with his chest before striking past the goalkeeper. 


As previously reported, Super Eagles forwards Moses Simon and Paul Onuachu scored for Nantes and Trabzonspor, with the latter netting on his debut in the Turkish Super Liig and the former ending a 308-day goal drought.
