Fulham are currently wallowing in the murky Premier League relegation waters, with four Nigerians, Ola Aina, Tosin Adarabioyo, Josh Maja and Ademola Lookman as major protagonists of that cause.

The foursome have been striving to keep the club afloat, but had little or nothing to show for their efforts until Sunday, February 14, when they secured a resounding win at one of the most unexpected venues, Goodison Park, where they triumphed 2-0 over high-riding Everton.

The home team featured Alex Iwobi, the fifth Nigerian in the match day 24 fixture decided by two goals from Josh Maja, who struck on 48 and 65 minutes, to hand the visitors their away win and third of the season, leaving them third from bottom of the standings with 18 points, seven adrift of Newcastle United, who occupy a rung above the relegation zone.

All four made the starting line-up, with Aina and Adarabioyo seeing off the encounter while Maja and Lookman were pulled out on 73 and 83 minutes for Ivan Cavaleiro and Zambo Anguissa respectively.

Adarabioyo, 23, has played 19 games, same as Aina, who has a goal in the bag. Lookman has made 20 appearances while Maja has belted two games and scored as many goals following his loan arrival from Bordeaux on February 1.

Just like they often stayed together to rue poor results, Aina, Adarabioyo joined Maja in celebration after the epic win in London, as pictured above.

Aina and Maja are full-fledged Nigeria internationals, having belted some games for Super Eagles after representing England at age-grade levels while Lookman and Adarabioyo, who also played four England at youth levels are in line for their maiden call-up, having been recently cleared by FIFA to switch their international allegiance.
