Ex AC Milan youth teamer Henty Ezekiel who made a big money move to Lokomotiv Moscow of Russia during the January transfer window had a debut to forget.

Spotting jersey number 45, the 22 year old came in as a substitute in the 58th minute with his team 2-1 down despite taking an early lead in the game failed to restore parity for his team.

Ezekiel who scored 8 times for Olympija Ljuglbana Olimpija Ljubljana of Slovenia before his move to Russia is reportedly the highest sale by a Slovenia team in the history of the country’s league.

At Lokomotive Moscow he will be hoping to fare better than the other two Nigerians who had stints with the team, namely Peter Osaze Odemwingie who was fairly more successful than Obinna Nsofor who later went there.

Both players didn’t achieve more and they both controversially left the team after a season and a half.
