Europa Conference League: Chukwueze, Olayinka Strikes Nominated For Goal Of The Week
Nigerian duo, Samuel Chukwueze and Peter Olayinka’s strikes have been both nominated for the UEFA Europa Conference League match day 1 goal of the week as revealed on their official website.
Chukwueze got the equalizer for Villarreal after the Spanish side concede early in the opening part of the game with a fantastic left footed volleyball to restore parity as they ran out eventual winners in the 4-3 goal fest clash.
Olayinka who should have gotten a brace for himself in Slavia Praha’s clash against Sivasspor gave his team the lead in the 4th minute as they eventually played out a 1-1 draw.
Speaking after the game, Olayinka admitted that he should have taken the missed penalty in the dying minutes but he trusted Provod to score after he scored the previous one in the last league game.
“It’s football you can score, you can miss, it doesn’t matter but then we should be proud of ourselves and Provod should be proud of himself too, that’s football,” he concluded.
