Euro Wrap: Okereke, Ebuehi in Serie A thriller; Simon’s Nantes fly past Terem’s Lorient

Here is’s highlights of a few European club games involving Nigerian footballers on Sunday.

Nigerian forward David Okereke and Super Eagles fullback Tyrone Ebuehi were in action as Venezia threw away a three-goal lead to lose 3-4 at home to Verona.

Okereke started and played his part as Ceccaroni, Črnigoj and Henry put the Winged Lions three-nil up inside the first half hour. But Henry’s own-goal shortly after the break and a red card to Ceccaroni on the hour, changed the complexion of the clash.

Ebuehi’s introduction shortly after Caprari’s penalty made it 3-2 for Verona did not stop Simeone from smashing home a late brace and snatching all three points for the visitors.

In France, Terem Moffi’s goal drought and Lorient’s stinking dorm continued as Moses Simon’s Nantes picked up a fine 1-0 away win at the Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir.

Wylan Cyprien’s 83rd minute effort settled the hard-fought encounter in favour of the Yellow Canaries.
