Eagles Euro Roundup: Aribo Scores As Rangers Stretch Unbeaten Run; Azeez, Etebo Missing Again For Granada, Stoke

Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo was on target for Rangers in their 3-0 away win against Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League on Friday night, Completesports.com reports.

It was Aribo’s second goal in 15 league appearances in the league for Rangers.

He scored his last goal on November 10 in a 2-0 away win against Livingston.

Aribo doubled Rangers’ lead in the eight minute after Ryan Kent had opened scoring in the fourth minute.

Former England international Jermain Defoe made it 3-0 in the 53rd minute.

Seven minutes after Defoe’s goal, Hibernian were reduced to 10 men after Ryan Porteous was sent off.

Rangers are now unbeaten in 15 consecutive league games, winning 13 and drawing two, and are on 44 points, just two points off leaders Celtic.

A win for Celtic against visiting Aberdeen would see them extend their lead over Rangers to five points.

In the Spanish LaLiga, Ramon Azeez was an unused substitute for Granada who lost 3-0 away to Eibar.

Azeez has now been benched in Granada’s last four consecutive league games.

He last played in the league on November 23 in a 1-1 home draw against Atletico Madrid.

He has made 12 league appearances, scoring two goals so far this current campaign.

Eibar goals were scored by Sergi Enrich in the 21st minute, Kike in the 26th minute and Takashi Inui on 87 minutes.

His last outing for Granada was in the Spanish Copa del Rey in midweek which they won 3-2 after extra-time.

Azeez provided the assist for Granada’s third goal scored by Adrian Ramos who bagged a brace in the game.

And in the English Championship, Oghenekaro Etebo was once again left out of Stoke City squad that lost 2-1 away to Middlesbrough.

Friday’s absence means Etebo has now missed Stoke’s last five games.

The last time he made the matchday squad was on November 26, away to Cardiff City.

  • Nigeria is lucky to have discovered this instrument of mass destruction (soccer sense only please). I do hope Rohr blends his abundant materials into a potent force that will earn us AFCON ‘21, and make significant inroad to the ever coveted WC (Q’22).

    A bit strange that Gerrard has been using Aribo as a right winger in recent games. And even stranger that Aribo seems to be enjoying it. He has taken to that position like a fish takes to water. And look at his performance today. An assist for the first goal, and he scored a fantastic goal for the second. Keeps it simple. Releases the ball quickly. Good movement, always ready to recieve the ball. Challenges hard for the ball when he doesn’t have it. I no wan praise the guy too much, make em head no swell. But I have to say, I’m liking what I’m seeing!

    As for Etebo, I’m a bit concerned about his recent situation at Stoke City. Against Middlesbrough, he was missing from the match day squad. Perhaps they are treating him like this because he intends to move in January. I think moving to a bigger club would be great. Anyhow, Etebo may be out of favor at his club, but when he puts on the Naija jersey, he becomes a midfield beast. Let’s hope he gets a good deal come January, playing in a good league for a much bigger club!

    Nice hustling to close down the Hibs goalie, resulting in the chance for the first goal. And what a finish for the second goal. The commentator called it a TOP CLASS FINISH. I agree!

  • Aribo is a joy to watch. His movements and ball sense is top notch. I want to see him in one of Spanish top flight.
