How Zaidu Sanusi Shined Against Ibrahimovic and Giroud

FC Porto earned a valuable point against AC Milan at San Siro on Wednesday. The result took them up to second place in Group B after Atletico Madrid lost to Liverpool at Anfield.

Super Eagles' leftback, Zaidu Sanusi, came up against Oliver Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the 24-year-old had a match to remember.

In the 12th minute, the electrifying full back was released down the flank by Diogo Costa, only to be tripped up by Theo Hernandez.

Sanusi quickly settled into the match and was excellent against Oliver Giroud, who was Milan's biggest threat. Sanusi kept Oliver Giroud quiet and won four tackles in the game.

Giroud was then withdrawn in the 76th minute for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who also struggled against Sanusi and the entire Porto defense.

Sanusi was a threat down the left wing as he made some overlapping runs and created one big chance in the game.

The leftback, who struggled against Liverpool on match day two and was at fault for Mohammed Salah's opening goal, delivered a mature performance.

Sanusi was named in the Super Eagles' 24 man list for Nigeria's world cup qualifiers against Liberia and Carpe Verde and his performance last night will certainly impress. Gernot Rohr.
