Super Eagles of Nigeria dazzler, Chidera Ejuke was in action on Monday night for CSKA Moscow in their 8th game of the Russian premier league against Spartak Moscow at the VEB Arena.
The Nigerian prolific winger was given a role to play in his team's starting XI following his outstanding performance for the club in their previous game and he was able to impress.
Chidera Ejuke was exceptional up front as he played alongside Fedor Chalov behind Anton Zabolotny and they were all able to impress with the latter netting the only goal that separated the two sides at full time.
The first half of the game was such a balanced one between the two sides as there was nothing to separate them at the break which ended goalless draw.
After playing out an intensed goalless first half, they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays in the second half of the game but none was able to break the deadlock until the 81st minute when Anton Zabolotny took the lead for the host to make it one nil.
After several attempts from both ends to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended one nil at full time.
The win for CSKA Moscow has now taken them to the 7th spot on the table with 13 points in 8 games played and as such be hoping to keep the winning streaks going in their next fixture, so as to continue their pursuit in the competition.
