The
excitement of the Champions League and Europa League can still be felt in the
air and now it’s time to give you a detailed account of how our Nigerian stars
shined or failed to shine in the last three days……
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Alex Iwobi was once again a
shining light and a torn in the flesh of defenders as he helped Arsenal FC beat
Basel two goals to nothing.
He
was taken off in the 70 minute as Mohamed Elneny came on in his place.
Kelechi Iheanacho was once again on
the bench as his team Manchester City had to come three times from behind to
play out an exciting three all draw with home side Celtic FC.
He
was not seen as good enough when the team needed goals and was left frustrated
on the bench all through the match.
Vice-captain
of the Eagles, Ahmed Musa was on the
bench for the better part of his team Leicester City’s game against Porto.
The
pacy winger finally got a run in, in the 90 minute when Jamie Vardy was taken
off. The game ended Leicester City one Porto nil.
EUROPA LEAGUE
Former
Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Emenike,
scored the only goal as Fenerbahce playing at home pipped Feyenoord 1-0.
Emenike
scored in the 18th minute to secure the win for Fenerbahce.
Super
Eagles forward Brown Ideye was in
action for Olympiacos who were shocked 1-0 at home by Apoel Nicosia.
Ideye
was on for 90 minutes but was unable to save his side from losing.
Nigeria
midfielder Nosa Igiebor featured for
Maccabi TelAviv who lost 1-0 to Dundalk, in a boring encounter.
Igiebor
was replaced by Dor Micha in the 59th minute.
Fred Friday and his team AZ
Alkmaar were given a footballing lesson by Zenith St Petersburg who thrashed
them 5 nil.
Friday
was on for the full games but was left disappointed by his team’s display.
Olanrewaju Kayode, started the game
but was substituted in the 85th minut as Austria Wien were held 0-0
at home by Viktoria Plzen.

Wilfred Ndidi continues to be
inspiring as he made a 90 minute appearance for Genk in their 3-1 home win
against Sassuolo.
