Super Eagles defender, Chidozie Awaziem believes Boavista are on the right track while also hailing the excellent team spirit in their 3-0 Primeira Liga spanking of Benfica on Monday.
Awaziem captained Boavista to a commanding victory over As Águias in what was a defensive masterclass at the Estádio do Bessa Século XXI, their first win of the 2020/21 campaign.
With regular skipper, Javi Garcia suspended for the clash, Awaziem was handed the captaincy armband as the hosts in search of their first win of the campaign which they finally landed.
Boavista broke the deadlock on 16 minutes when former Manchester United player, Angel Gomes was fouled in the box with the forward dusting himself up before smashing home from the spot.
Alberth Elis was then teed up with a fantastic back heel and the Honduran international fired home for 2-0 in the 38th minute after which Yanis Hamache scored the third on 76 minutes.
Awaziem was on for the entire match duration and the defender finished with a rating of 6.9, making 3 clearances, 2 key tackles, winning 4 duels whilst also completing 70% of his passes.
The Nigerian international then posted on Instagram: “Excellent team spirit, well deserved victory, we are on the right track +3…love panthers let’s go @boavistafutebolclube,” he wrote.
So far, so good, Awaziem has started and finished five Portuguese top-flight matches for Boavista whom he joined on loan from FC Porto in the summer while picking up three yellow cards.
