Igiebor, Others In Champions League Setback

It was a night not to forget for three Nigerians who played for their respective teams in the UEFA champions league qualifiers, on Tuesday night as they all tasted defeat in the first leg ties.

In Malta, Nosa Igiebor thought he had given his team Maccabi Tel Aviv a lead good enough to help them secure at least a draw when he scored in the 22nd minute, but two goals from the home team Hibernians helped them to a 2-1 win sending Igiebor and his Israeli side home empty handed.

However Igiebor’s goal might be pivotal in their quest to turn around the tie in the second leg in a fortnight when they play at home, but same cannot be said of Rabiu Ibrahim and Kingsley Madu’s AS Trencin who fell   2-0 at home to Steau Bucuresti of Romania.

The duo who had their debut for the Super Eagles in Nigeria’s last 2017 qualifier against Chad in Kaduna, were on from the start but while Madu played the entire duration of the game Rabiu was on for 79 minute before giving way to Ryan Koolwijk
