Super Eagles’ players on fire

0

Many of the Super Eagles’ players were on target in the different leagues of the world over the weekend. Speedy, but petit winger, Ahmed Musa, set the pace as he scored late in a local derby in Moscow, Russia, where his club, CSKA Moscow, fought gamely to draw 2–2 with city rival, Spartak, which played without its Nigerian striker and AFCON 2013 hero, Emmanuel Emenike.

It was Musa’s 10th goal for the club, as CSKA came from two goals down. The Nigerian striker led his club’s redemption battle as he scored in the 73rd minute. He later dedicated the goal to his late sister, who passed away recently. While Musa was scoring in Eastern Europe, Obafemi Martins in the far west, the United States, also scored his first goal in the MLS for Seattle in a 1–0 defeat of Colorado Rapids, a club Daniel Amokachi was to play for in the early 2000 in a failed bid to revive his playing career.

Obafemi, who only passed a late fitness test, thrilled the crowd with his famous back flip celebration. It was Seattle’s first victory this season. Another Super Eagle, Brown Ideye, scored a brace in Dynamo Kiev’s 5–0 defeat of Zorya in the Russian League. He scored Dynamo’s second goal in the 38th minute before completing his brace in the 81st minute. On the winning side were two other former Super Eagles’ players, Taye Taiwo and Lukman Haruna. Another scoring Nigerian at the weekend, was former Under-20 player, Uche Nwofor, who hit target in a 2–2 draw of his club, VVV Venlo against FC Twente in the Dutch League.

Ike Uche, who had a bad outing at the Africa Nations Cup, appears to have regained his scoring prowess. He scored the goals for his Turkish club, Kasimpasa in the 2–0 defeat of Orduspor on Saturday. The 30-year-old, who joined Kasimpasa from La Liga club, RCD Espanyol, has been called up to the Nigerian squad for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil. Also, Chrisantus Macaulay is back among the goal scorers in Spain’s second division where he has been quietly been going about his business for Union Deportiva Las Palmas.

The lanky forward scored twice for Las Palmas as Los Amarillos stunned Xerez CD 2–1 at the Estadio Chapin, Jerez de la Frontera on Matchday 35 of the Segunda. Chrisantus, Nigeria’s top scorer at the FIFA Under-17 World Championship in 2007, scored Las Palmas’ opening goal on Saturday in the 16th minute. Xerez were back on level terms when Jose Manuel Rueda smashed home a penalty on 40 minutes.

Chrisantus was not to be denied though, as he completed his brace just after the hour to give his side three crucial points on the road. The win lifts Las Palmas to sixth on the table with 58 points from 35 matches. The 22-year-old Nigerian has scored nine goals in the Segunda this term.
