Nigerian star Chuba Akpom made a debut to remember for his England team on Saturday afternoon, as his new club Middlesbrough played a 1-1 away draw against Queens Park Rangers in the English championship at The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.
Chuba Akpom made his move from Greek League giants PAOK Thessaloniki few days ago for an undisclose fee, and the former Arsenal youngster was thrown to the starting line up by coach Neil Warnock immediately.
Middlesbrough started the match on a high note, as they opened the scoring through new signing Chuba Akpom, who scored a fine goal in the 19th minutes, after receiving an assist from McNair.
Both teams tried to score the winning goal in the second half, but all their efforts to find the back of the net were not successful, as the match ended with no victor no vanquished.
Three Nigerian players were on action for the two teams, and they all played the whole 90th minutes, and they were outstanding in the game.
Queens Park Rangers paraded Luke Amos in the team's midfield, Bright Osayi-Samuel in the team's attack, while Middlesbrough paraded Chuba Akpom in their attack also.
The draw means Queens Park Rangers are now in the 10th position with 4 points from 3 matches played, while Middlesbrough are in the 18th position with 2 points from 3 matches played in the English championship.
