Super Eagles watch: Ninth goal involvement for Ndidi; Dessers powerful strike; Ejuke gets his groove back 

Three Super Eagles players were on target to help their respective clubs register wins in league matches on Saturday, December 9.


Wilfred Ndidi continued to play an integral role for Leicester City in their bid to regain promotion to the Premier League when he scored in Leicester City's 4-0 win over Plymouth in a Championship fixture at the King Power Stadium  

The Nigeria midfielder got the Foxes' last goal of the encounter when he calmly slotted the ball home from Patson Daka's precise pass in the 55th minute.

During the 69 minutes the Nigeria international spent on the pitch,  he recorded 27 touches completed 85% of his passes, missed 2 big chances and won 1 aerial duel.

He has now registered nine goal involvements (4 goals, 5 assists) for Enzon Maresca's side so far this season.


Cyriel Dessers bagged his 5th goal of the season in the Scottish Premiership during Rangers' 3-1 triumph over Dundee FC at the Ibrox Stadium.

In the 20th minute, Todd Cantwell put the Super Eagles' forward through on goal, he had his first effort blocked by the goalkeeper but was in the right place to score with a powerful strike that was deflected into the net. 

Before his substitution in the 72nd minute, the 29-year-old had 28 touches of the ball, lost possession 12 times, completed 43% of his passes and put in a decent defensive shift by winning 2 of the ground duels he contested.

Today's goal took his goal contribution for Rangers to ten having registered 7 goals and three assists in 24 appearances. 


Chidera Ejuke helped Royal Antwerp to a 3-1 win over Cercle Brugge in a Jupiler Pro League encounter at the Jan  Breydel Stadium.


The 25-year-old grabbed Antwerp's second of the game three minutes before the hour mark to give the Belgian defending champions a two-goal cushion over their opponent.


After failing to get on the scoresheet in his first eight games as a Royal Antwerp player, Ejuke has scored three goals in his last five appearances across all competitions.
