Nwakali scores in Norway



Nigerian youngster, Chidiebere Nwakali scored on Monday to inspire Norwegian club, IK Start, pick up a point in the 1-1 draw with Aalesund.

The former Golden Eaglets captain opened the scoring in the 65th minute of the Eliteserien clash decided at Color Line Stadion.

The 19-year-old showed cold-bloodedness and maturity well beyond his tender years for his goal just after the hour mark.

He took out his markers with an intelligent run off the ball, creating space for himself before curling home a right-footed shot past the Aalesund goalkeeper, Andreas Lie.

Nwakali also owed the goal, partly to his teammate, Vassbakk Ajer who crossed in exemplary fashion from the right.

It was the Nigeria’s first goal in nine league matches for Start this season.
