Nigeria U-23 forward Theophilus Solomon who is currently the top scorer for his loan side NK Sibenik scored his 10th goal of the season netting a vital equaliser against his former team NK Zadar in a game that ended 1-1.

Solomon moved from his preferred role as the team main striker to a winger since the start of the second stanza in Croatia has found goals hard to come by in 2016 but finally ended the drought with an 82nd minute equaliser.

This is the second time he is scoring against Zadar after scoring in the reverse fixture which they won 5-0 but unlike then when he didn’t celebrate his goal this time around he celebrated with the traveling fans.

Last season Solomon was on loan from HNK Rijeka to NK Zadar where injuries limited his playing time for the club but still ended up scoring twice in the league and a hattrick in the cup to finish with five goals.

Zadar got relegated and the 2013 Nigeria U-17 trainee moved to Sibenik where he has been one of their best player so far with his performance which aside his goals includes eight assist.

The result which help them extend their lead at the top of the second division table in Croatia to seven points hence moving them closer to their dream of gaining promotion might prove costly if their promotion rival win their game tomorrow.
