Nigeria youth International Musa Yahaya scored his first ever club goal for his loan side Portimonense to lift them to a 1-0 win over Benfica B.

Yahaya who joined Portimonense on loan from English side Tottenham Hotspurs came on as a substitute in the 65th minute for his third game in Portimonense colours and showed why he is so highly rated with the way he took his goal.

He received a through pass from Fidelis rounded the keeper with a clever nutmeg before slotting into the net what ended up as the winner in the 78th minute and also his first ever club goal.

In the the 81st minute he embarked on a solo run before releasing the ball to Fidelis who failed to connect after arriving late to the cross and few minutes later he almost got another but his well hit shot cannon off the bar with the goalkepper beaten.

The goal will be more memorable for the 18 year old as he is just returning from a ban after he was sent off in his first start for the Portuguese side.
