Super Eagles invitee, Nwankwo Obiora, featured for 90 minutes for Academica De Coimbra but couldn’t prevent his team from losing 1-0 to Pacos De Ferreira in the Portuguese Primera Liga on Monday night.

The only goal of the game came off the boot of Roniel, who struck with two minutes remaining in the first half.

In action also, was Super Eagles defender, Godfrey Oboabona, who is also among the 18-man Eagles foreign-based players invited by Coach Sunday Oliseh.

Oboabona was on for Caykur Rizespor, throughout the duration of their 3-2 away win against Genclerbirligi.

And in the Swedish league, former junior international, John Owoeri, was on from the start for Atvidaberg but was later substituted for Ajsel Kujovic in his team’s 1-1 home draw against Norrkoeping.

Liverpool youngster, Jordan Ibe, was in action for the Reds in their 1-0 win against newly promoted AFC Bournemouth at Anfield on Monday.

He was later replaced by new signing, Roberto Firmino, with 20 minutes remaining in the match.

Liverpool’s goal was scored by former Aston Villa striker, Christian Benteke, who converted off an assist from skipper Jordan Henderson in the 26th minute.
