Published

on

Nigerians were in blistering form for their various European clubs at the weekend with the quintet of Kelechi Iheanacho, Simeon Nwankwo, Paul Onuachu, Victor Osimhen, and Terem Moffi particularly impressive.

In England, the rejuvenated Iheanacho scored twice as Leicester City lost to this season surprise package West Ham 2-3 at the City of London Stadium.

His goals in the 70th and 90th minute were not enough to save Brendan Rodgers troops from second consecutive defeat in seven days.

In Italy, Nwankwo scored his 16th goal of the season in his relegation-bound Crotone’s 2-3 defeat to Specia on Sunday.

In Belgium, the beanpole Onuachu scored his 27th goal of the season in Genk’s 4-0 victory over La Louvre. The victory maintained the Blues’ second position on the league table.
