Super Eagles star inspires FC Porto to a 1-0 away League victory to move to 2nd spot

Super Eagles of Nigeria left-back Zaidu Sanusi was impressive for Sergio Conceicao led Portuguese Primeira Liga Champions FC Porto on Sunday night, as he guided them to a deserved 1-0 victory over Nacional FC, in the week 27 of the Portuguese League.

The former Santa Clara FC defender retained his spot in coach Sergio Conceicao's team, and he was able to impress as usual, as he played a vital part in his team's deserved victory.

Zaidu Sanusi started in the defence line alongside former Real Madrid star Pepe, Chancel Mbemba, and Wilson Manafa, and they were all outstanding for the away team.

The visitors took the lead through Mehdi Taremi in the 20th minutes, after receiving an assist from Jesus Corona to end the first half 1-0.

Both teams tried to score more goals in the second half of the game, but all their efforts were not successful, and Zaidu Sanusi made many clearances to help his goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet, as the match ended 1-0 in favour of the league Champions.

Zaidu Sanusi was impressive for the away team in their 1-0 deserved victory over Nacional FC, and he was crucial in his team's only goal, before he was replaced by Nanu in the 80th minutes.

The 1-0 victory over Nacional FC has now taken Sergio Conceicao's FC Porto to the second spot of the Portuguese Primeira Liga table with 63 points from 27 matches played.
