Former Nigeria junior internationals, Victor Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi, have continued to prove their relevance for their respective clubs as they were both on target during Sunday’s league matches in Belgium.
While Osimhen scored from the penalty spot to earn Sporting Charleroi the three points against Royal Antwerp in the Belgium Pro Division League, Awoniyi got the equaliser for Royal Excel Mouscron in their 1-1 draw at home to St. Truiden.
The game was Osimhen’s 24th of the season and his 11th league appearance for Charleroi.
10–man Charleroi won the match 2-1. In the case of Awoniyi who grabbed his seventh for Mouscron, he was on for seventy five minutes before replaced by Frantzdy Pierrot in a game that saw Mouscron play with nine men.
Both players have represented Nigeria at the junior level.
In Italy, Ola Aina who was returning from injury replaced Lorenzo De Silvestri in the 69th minute of Torino’s 2-1 away win over Frosinone which was the 23rd league game of the season for the Super Eagles defender.
