Russia: Idowu Ends Six Months Goal Drought As Khimki Lose Away 

Brian Idowu got Khimki’s only goal but it was not enough as they lost 3-1 away to FK Akhmat, in the Russian Premier League on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.

It was Idowu’s first goal since October 25 2020, in a 2-0 awau win against Rostov.

Idowu scored with just two minutes left against Akhmat which was just a consolation.

    Idowu’s lovely goal against Argentina in our 4-2 win – his finest moment as a super eagle. Always represented the jersey well whenever he was called upon.
    Spasiba, Brian.

    The Left Back spot still needs competition. We know we have Zaidu now. Natural left back are still needed and now Collins seems to be dropping in terms of his quality and the league he plays and here we have IDOWU playing week in week out for Khimki in the Russian League and this goal he scored even makes it 3 for him this season, Mehn… I feel this guy deserves a Re-call!

      Nice one @ chairmanfemi. Honestly speaking, Idowu to me is definitely another decent option. His quickness at recovering and bursting forward is worth admiring. Also he is a very strong well balanced player. Well the onus lies with the gaffer regarding selection. We can only suggest and support him to succeed with SE.
