Theophilus Solomon continued his fine run of form for NK Sibenik posting a man of the match performance as they beat Segesta 1-0 to move close to promotion to the top division in Croatia.

20 year old Solomon already has 12 goals this season didn’t score against Segesta but was by far the best player on the pitch for the table toppers in the Croatia second division.

Playing in his favourite top striker position, he was simply unplayable to Segesta twice crashing the bar with well hit effort from range with the goalkepper beaten.

Capped by Nigeria U-23 in a lone goal victory over Brazil in a friendly game few week ago. He brought others into play with smart hold up play and almost scored with an acrobatic effort late in the game.

However he wasn’t the only Nigerian on the pitch for Sibenik as goalkepper David Nwokolor made his 9th appearance between the sticks while mid season recruit Jamilu Collins also started in what was his 5th appearance of the season.
