Nigeria youth international Musa Yahaya who is out on loan to Portimonense of Portugal from English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspurs made his competitive debut for the team in their 1-0 win over Farense.

The game was decided by a Jadson goal scored in the 80th minute of play but for the 18 year old Nigerian coming on a minute after the half time break will boost his morale of finally getting his career underway.

Yahaya was lively and twice used his trademark mazy run and dribble to good effect for his team by forcing a corner kick which was wasted by his teammate.

On a season long loan from Tottenham Hotspurs he wasn’t the only Nigerian on the pitch as three other Nigerians also made their presence felt in the game.

They were Musa Yahaya’s Portimonense teammate Fidelis Irhene who is on loan from FC Porto while on the opposite and the losing side Femi Balogun and one cap Super Eagles forward Sunday Emmanuel came on as substitutes for Farense.
