UCL: Echiejile Scores As Monaco Crash; Igiebor Through

—Ambrose Falls With Celtic

By Johnny Edward:

It was a tale of two ends for Nigerian players that featured in Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League play-offs as only Nosa Igiebor’s Maccabi Tel Aviv qualified for the group stage of the competition while the duo of Efe Ambrose and Elderson Echiejile crashed out of the competition.

Igiebor’s Maccabi Tel Aviv qualified courtesy of the away goals rule with a 1-1 home result after the first leg at Basel ended 2-2 last week.

At the Louis stadium in France, Elderson Echiejile was subbed on for Lavyin Kurzawa in the 62nd minute as Monaco lost 4-3 on aggregate to Valencia despite defeating the Spanish side 2-1 in the second leg.

Echiejile was booked in the 68th minute before latching on to a Bernard’s cross to score in the 75th minute of the encounter to make it 2-1 for the hosts​

In Sweden, Efe Ambrose’s Celtic crashed out of the UEFA Champions League play-off to Malmo FF 4-3 on aggregate having won the first leg 3-2.

Ambrose was an unused substitute in the defeat.​

  • ok ok ok Elderson Echiejile did not qualify but he was solid at that left side with solid overlapping moves when he came in. He even scored from one of those overlapping moves. He looks fit eye-viewing him. Bulky chest and all serious. Why I am saying this is that the players Oliseh invited to the Super Eagles should be better than him I believe. This excuse that you invited 2 players for each wing may not hold water when biz begins. Oliseh having a new N6+million car for “comfortability” is good o but if Nigeria should mess up with this Tanzania vs Nigeria match, it won’t be funny. We are sounding the warning now. 3 good players not invited- Oghali, Iheanacho, Echiejile. We are waiting for the match to assess Oliseh.
