Super Eagles forward, Henry Onyekuru is happy with his Turkish side, Galatasary’s performance despite their 3-2 home defeat to Portuguese outfit, FC Porto in their Champions League Group D clash on Tuesday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Turkish champions were in the hunt for a Europa League ticket in Group D along with Russian side, Locomotiv Moscow.

“We had some luck, we couldn’t evaluate some positions and we made simple mistakes. We will try to correct our mistakes by working with our coach on these shortcomings.
“We want to represent our club in the UEFA Europa League in the best way by working on the mistakes we have made in the Champions League.”
