Echiejile, Oshaniwa In Pre-Season Action As Falcao Scores For Monaco

By Johnny Edward: Super Eagles defender Elderson Echiejile was in action for Monaco who recorded their first pre-season win by defeating FC Lugano 5-3 at the Comunale Cornaredo Stadium in Switzerland on Saturday.

The 28-year-old Nigerian international came on at half time as coach Leonard Jardim overhauled his starting line-up.

A brace from Thomas Lemar and strikes from Ramadel Falcao, Guido Carrillo and an own goal secured the side their first win in pre-season.

Monaco will face third division side SC Kriens on Sunday.

At the Central Park stadium in Scotland, Juwon Oshaniwa played all 90 minutes for Hearts FC in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Cowdenbeath.

The former Ashdod defender was outpaced by Shaun Rutherford down the left and his ball across goal was fired home by Kris Renton in the 23rd minute for the opening goal of the encounter.
With ten minutes left to play Dario Zanatta scored the equaliser from the spot after he was brought down on the left side of the box.

Hearts face FC Infonet of Estonia next away in mid-week for the second leg of the Europa League first round tie before hosting  Dunfermline Athletic next Saturday.

Oshaniwa is expected to be included in the squad for the trip to Estonia after missing the first leg.
