The league in Norway is known as a breeding ground for most Nigerian youngster so it wasn’t much a surprise when five of them took part in Start 0-1 loss to Viking.

Chidiebere Nwakali the on loan Manchester midfielder finally got his European career off the ground playing the last 20 minutes for start who also have Uduak Cyril Idemokun on for the entire duration of the game.

Nwakali had a frustrating time in his previous two loan spells at Malaga and Girona but what would have been a dream professional debut was ruined by another Nigerian in Suleiman Abdullahi.

The former Nigeria youth international scored the winner for Viking in the 27th minute to give them all three points with help from his fellow Nigerian at the team Samuel Adegbenro who was substituted with six minutes left to play in the game.

Usman Sale was an unused substitute by Viking in the game as well.
