Etebo scores as Feirense stun Chaves



Oghenekaro Etebo scored the winner as Feirense came back from two goals down to complete a memorable 3-2 win over Chaves in the Primeira Liga (Portugal’s top flight) on Sunday.

Chaves went in front through Rennan Bressan’s stunning 30-yard free kick on the stroke of half time and doubled their lead four minutes after the restart through Fábio Martins.

Martins’ strike was a thing of beauty as latched onto Pedro Tiba’s intelligent pass before embarking on a jinking run that left three Feirense defenders for dead before squeezing in a consummate finish past goalkeeper, Vanialson ‘Vaná’ Alves from a tight angle.

The hosts refused to roll over and were back on level terms through goals in the 54th and 56th minutes through Tiago Silva and Luís Machado.

Etebo would have the final say, in the 81st minute, of the rip roaring contest decided at Estádio Marcolino de Castro (Santa Maria da Feira) in stunning fashion.

The Super Eagles man lifted all of his five feet, seven and a half inches frame to win a header against the much taller Chaves defender, Pedro Queirós as he met Machado’s cross from the right with a firm header which flew into the back of the net.

Etebo has now scored two goals in all competitions for Feirense this season.
