Former Pacos de Ferreira, Uniao Madeira and Senica forward, Christian Okechukwu Irobiso scored a very important winner for Farense to help them beat Atletico CP 2-1 to bring some ray of hope in their fight to beat the drop to the third division in Portugal.

Irobiso struck in the first minute of time added on in the first half for his third goal of the season which took Farense point tally for the season to 49, two points away from safety.

22 year old Irobiso has been in Europe since the 2011/2012 season when he joined Pacos de Ferreira before leaving on loan to Uniao Madeira the next season.

He returned to Pacos de Ferreira where he played for two more seasons before heading to Slovakia where he spent a season with Senica, a short spell with Czech Republic side Vysocina Jihlava followed suite before he returned to Portugal last season.

Last season he scored six times from 23 games for Farense but he has so far failed to hit that same height this season with just three goals to his name from 34 games.

22nd placed Farense also have two other Nigerians on their books in Femi Balogun and Sunday Akinbule.
