NIGERIAN STRIKER SCORES WONDERGOAL IN CROATIA
Nigerian striker Henty Ezekiel scored a Renaldo like bicycle kick goal while playing for his Croatian club, NK Osijek in the first league game of the 2018/2019 season against Hajduk Split. The young striker, who once played for AC Milan in Italy recently joined the Croatia outfit from Puskas Academy in Hungary.
At the 19th minute of the game which was a derby, his teammate sends a cross into the area of the opponent, but a defender heads it out of the danger zone but not too far away. The ball lands on the head of an Osijek player who sends it back with the head, and it falls to Henty who had two opposing players around him. He first controlled the ball with so much Gael and then swings his feet with great majesty to shoot the ball into the net. The stadium erupted in celebrations. (See video)
