Chelsea Nigerian Forward Ugbo Scores On Cercle Brugge Debut

Chelsea on loan forward Ike Ugbo scored on his debut for Cercle Brugge in their 3-2 win at KV Mechelen, in the Belgian topflight on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.

Ugbo who only joined Cercle Brugge last week, scored in the 54th minute to draw his side at 1-1.

The 21-year-old was later replaced in the 67th minute of the game.

Other scorers for Cercle Brugge were Dino Hotic (57th minute) and Thibo Somers (80th minute).

William Togui and Aster Vranckx were the scorers for Mechelen in the 37th and 64th minutes respectively.

The win was Cercle Brugge’s second after three games in the new league season.

They are now fourth on six points in the 18-team league table.

In his loan spell at Roda JC last season Ugbo scored 13 goals in 28 games for the Dutch club.

    This guy is super skillful he reminds me of zaha.Gernot rohr should take a quick swip on this talent. And for him to be a Chelsea player is not a fluke..

    I have watched this guy at close quarters and I kinda think he’s got huge talent.

    Good one, Ike! Not many strikers experience the joy of scoring in their debut game for a new club. Keep up the good work.
    Meanwhile, there’s a Nigerian central defender (Junior Udeme Pius) turning out consistently for Royal Antwerp (90 mins in the Belgian Cup Final victory against Club Brugge, and in the first two games of the new season, plus substitute appearance in yesterday’s victory against Gent). I wonder why he doesn’t get mentioned in completesports. I think our sport papers need to do a better job of reporting on Nigerian players in all major football leagues.

    @Aleks,pius udeme has played in Portugal in recent years. Nobody made mention of him, sometimes I wonder why completesportsnigeria.com don’t mention some good players.
