Super Eagles star shines in his team away league with two-goal thriller

Super Eagles of Nigeria defender, Chidozie Awaziem was in action today for Alanyaspor in their 8th league game of the Turkish Super Lig against Konyaspor at the Konya Buyuksehir Stadyumu.

The Nigerian star retained his spot in his team's starting XI following his incredible performance for the club since his arrival in the last summer transfer window.

Chidozie Awaziem was solid at the heart of the defence line and as such played the whole 90 minutes duration of the game, playing key role in rescuing a vital away point for his team.

The first half of the game was such a balanced one as there was nothing to separate the two sides going into the half time break which ended goalless draw.

The tempo of the game got tensed up in the second half as they both put up some physical, tactical and technical displays with the visitor taking the lead in the 49th minute with a goal from Fatih Akso to make it one nil before the host were able to levelled up with an equaliser from Guilherme in the 87th minute to make it 1-1.

After several attempts from both sides to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended one all draw at full time thereby making it no victor no vanquished.

The disappointing result of the day for Alanyaspor has now taken them to the 7th spot on the table with 14 points in 8 games played and as such be hoping to be back to winning ways in their next fixture, so as to continue their pursuit in the competition.
