The European football governing body UEFA has reacted after Super Eagles star Anthony Nwakaeme netted a goal in his team's 2-1 home victory over Sivasspor football club, in the week 2 of Turkish Super Lig.
The Nigerian international was given another starting role by his coach, after his outstanding performance for the club in their previous matches and he was able to impress again.
Anthony Nwakaeme started in the home team's attack alongside former Arsenal football club star Yao Gervinho and Djaniny Tvaris and the Nigerian star was able to outshine his mates on the pitch.
The host took the lead through a penalty kick from Anastasios Bakasetas in the 15th minutes to end the first half 1-0.
Anthony Nwakaeme doubled the lead with a classic goal in the 47th minutes, before Isaac Cofie netted a goal for the away team in the 70th minutes to end the match 2-1.
Reacting after Nigerian Anthony Nwakaeme netted a goal to guide his team to a remarkable League victory, UEFA posted on their verified Twitter handle on Tuesday that;
"⚽️ Bakasetas, ⚽️ Nwakaeme, 🔴🔵 Trabzonspor prepare for their second-leg against Roma by beating Sivasspor 2-1 👏."
The Nigerian international will now be looking forward to building on his impressive performance when Trabzonspor FC play AS Roma FC, in the return leg of UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.
