<p class="">It was goal galore for Nigerian players abroad as a host of them including <strong>Henry Onyekuru</strong>, <strong>Victor Osimhen </strong>and <strong>Odion Ighalo</strong> scored for their respective teams abroad. </p>

<p class="">In our extensive coverage of Nigerian players abroad, we review the performances of these players and a host of other Nigerian stars plying their trade abroad. </p>

<p class=""><strong>England </strong></p>

<p class="">We start from Nigeria where a host of players were involved in <strong>Premier League</strong> and <strong>Championship </strong>actions. </p>

<p class=""><strong>Wilfred Ndidi</strong> was on from the start in <strong>Leicester City</strong>’s 0-1 home loss to <strong>Newcastle United </strong>on Friday. The midfielder was on the pitch for 72 minutes before he was taken off. </p>

<p class="">His compatriot and teammate <strong>Kelechi Iheanacho</strong> was introduced in the 72nd minute but he couldn’t make any impact for Leicester City. </p>

<p class="">On Monday night, <strong>Alex Iwobi</strong> played the whole 90 minutes for <strong>Arsenal </strong>who got a 1-0 win away at <strong>Watford </strong>for just their sixth away win of the season. Iwobi was lively all through the game and was Arsenal’s main threat from the wing.</p>

<figure class="embedded_application" align="center"> <figcaption>+3 ⚽️</figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">His compatriot <strong>Isaac Success </strong>was in action for Watford as he was introduced later in the second half and although he was lively during his time on the pitch, he couldn’t help Watford to get an equaliser.  </p>

<p class=""><strong>Championship </strong></p>

<p class="">A division lower, <strong>Mikel John Obi</strong> led <strong>Middlesbrough </strong>as a captain to a 1-0 win over<strong> Hull City</strong> on Saturday, It was another composed performance from the Nigerian veteran midfielder who has now led Middlesbrough to two wins as a captain. </p>

<figure class="embedded_application" align="center"> <figcaption>Hard fought 3 points yesterday. Let’s keep it up💪🏿 #UTB</figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">Two Nigerians <strong>Oghenekaro Etebo</strong> and <strong>Semi Ajayi</strong> clashed in the middle of the park when <strong>Stoke City</strong> settled for a 2-2 draw at home to <strong>Rotherham</strong>. </p>

<figure class="embedded_application" align="center"> <figcaption>Tough one tonight let’s just keep the positive mind set on🔴⚪️</figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">The two clashed several times on the pitch as they left their friendship on the sideline. Etebo played the whole 90 minutes for Stoke City, same as Ajayi who was in Rotherham colours. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Italy </strong></p>

<p class="">Super Eagles defender <strong>William Troost-Ekong</strong> was not able to keep out <strong>Roma </strong>who beat <strong>Udinese</strong> 1-0 at home in the <strong>Serie A</strong> on Saturday. Troost-Ekong played 90 minutes of the game but could not help his side to keep a clean sheet away from home. </p>

<p class="">Nigerian fullback <strong>Ola Aina</strong> returned to action for <strong>Torino </strong>and was introduced late in the first half in their 1-1 draw at home to <strong>Cagliari</strong>. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Denmark</strong></p>

<p class="">Nigerian youngster<strong> Frank Onyeka</strong> scored on his eighth league start of the season for <strong>FC Midtjylland</strong> who beat visiting <strong>OB </strong>2-0 to return to winning ways. Onyeka scored in the 57th minute to double FC Midtjylland’s lead and see them to victory. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Sweden</strong></p>

<p class="">Remember <strong>Chinedu Obasi</strong>, the Nigerian forward was on song for <strong>ALK </strong>who got their first league win of the season against<strong> IK Sirus</strong>. With just three games played in the <strong>Allsvenskan </strong>this season, ALK had drawn their first two and it was Obasi who drew them level in the 62nd minute against IK Sirus who went on to win 2-1.  </p>

<p class="">Nigerian forward <strong>Samuel Nnamani</strong> got his second league goal of the season for newly promoted<strong> AFC Eskilstuna</strong> who got a 1-1 home draw against <strong>Orebo SK</strong>.</p>

<p class="">Nnamani has settled in quickly after just joining <strong>AFC Eskilstuna</strong> as a free agent in March. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Spain</strong></p>

<p class=""><strong>Samuel Chukwueze</strong> continued with his insane for by scoring the winning goal for <strong>Villarreal </strong>which lifted them out of relegation following a 1-0 win over <strong>Girona</strong>.

<p class=""><strong>Moses Simon</strong> was introduced from the bench but could not help <strong>Levante </strong>who had no answers for <strong>Valencia</strong>, falling 1-3 away to the Los Ches Els.</p>

<p class="">Then on Monday night, <strong>Kenneth Omeruo</strong> returned to <strong>Leganes</strong> starting XI as they held <strong>Real Madrid </strong>to a 1-1 draw at home. </p>

<p class="">Omeruo played all the 90 minutes but wasn’t fast enough to stop <strong>Karim Benzema</strong> from getting the equaliser for <strong>Real Madrid</strong> after Leganes had taken the lead. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Turkey</strong></p>

<p class="">Nigerian striker <strong>Anthony Nwakaeme</strong> was in action for <strong>Trabzonspor </strong>on Friday, helping them to a 1-0 win away at <strong>Bursaspor</strong>. Nwakaeme was impressive again for Trabzonspor as he set up the only goal of the game. </p>

<p class="">Moses was also on from the start but was withdrawn towards the end of the game for Fenerbahce.</p>

<p class=""><strong>In China </strong></p>

<p class="">Super Eagles striker <strong>Odion Ighalo</strong> was on target again although his goal could not prevent a 1-2 loss for<strong> Shanghai Shenhua</strong> away at <strong>Guangzhou R&amp;F</strong> in the <strong>Chinese Super League </strong>(CSL). </p>

<figure class="embedded_application" align="center"> <figcaption></figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">Ighalo scored a 90th-minute penalty for Shanghai Shenhua but the host Guangzhou got a late goal to leave the Nigerian striker and his teammates with nothing from the game. </p>

<p class=""><strong>In Ukraine</strong></p>
