Nigerian exports: Lookman scores and assists; Moffi in red-hot form; Ohio super-sub; Olusanya strikes's review of the Nigerian players that found the net for their respective foreign clubs in league and cup matches on Wednesday, April 24.

Ademola Lookman scored and assisted as Atalanta thrashed Michael Kayode's Fiorentina 4-1 to advance to the final of the  2023-2024 Coppa Italia Frecciarossa.

The Nigeria international entered the game as a substitute in the 70th minute, replacing Éderson, and increased the lead to 3-1 with a left-footed strike from inside the box in the fourth minute of stoppage time. 

Mario Pasalic sealed the win in the 98th minute with Lookman providing the assist following a counter attack.

In the French Ligue 1, Terem Moffi continued his rich vein of form for OGC Nice after scoring in a 2-2 draw with Marseille at Orange Vélodrome. 

The Super Eagles striker broke the deadlock in the 12th minute to take his tally to five goals in his last seven matches in the division.

Elsewhere, Netherlands U21 international Noah Ohio came off the bench to net the match-winning goal as Hull City beat Coventry City 3-2 in a Championship game at the Coventry Building Society Arena. 

The Standard Liege loanee profited from a defensive blunder, pressurized the Coventry City goalkeeper Brad Collins and put the ball into the net in scrappy fashion to keep Hull City's  playoff dreams intact. 

Ohio has now scored two goals for the Tigers since joining them on loan in the January transfer window. 

In the Finnish Veikkausliiga, two-cap Finland international Anthony Olusanya was among the scorers as SJK Seinäjoki and HJK Helsinki shared the spoils in a six-goal thriller at OmaSp Stadion.

Olusanya netted his fifth career goal against SJK Seinäjoki in the 57th minute of the contest following a counter attack. 

Arsenal academy product Chuba Akpom came off the bench to rescue a point for Ajax Amsterdam in a 2-2 draw with Excelsior Rotterdam in a Dutch Eredivisie clash at Johan Cruijff ArenA.

In the 89th minute, the number 10 was on hand to slot in the rebound after goalkeeper Stijn van Gassel made a save.

Akpom has registered 14 goals in all competitions since his move to Ajax last summer, including 10 in the top-flight.
