Theophilus Solomon Scores Again To Power Istra To Victory In Croatia


Theophilus Solomon is showing his form for second division side NK Sibenik last season, where he scored 13 goals is no fluke after scoring his third goal in five games in the top flight league to wrap up a comprehensive 3-0 win for Istra over RNK Split.


He opened his season account on his debut netting against Lokomotiva Zagreb and followed it up with another against Ciballa but this is the first time he is tasting victory since joining Istra.

The forward who played for Nigeria U-23s in their 1-0 friendly win over Brazil in Rio before the Olympic appears to be delivering on the promises, that made Italian giants Juventus push to sign him when he was 16.

On loan from league giants Rijeka, the forward who has banished the injury demons that slowed down his career the past years scored on the dot of 90 minutes to cap an all round fine display.

Before scoring he was a handful for the defence of the home side, causing them all sort of trouble with his pace, skills and power which saw him fouled for the penalty from which Istra scored their second goal.

Since making his professional debut for NK Zadar two seasons ago, the 20 year old who has scored a hattrick in his last two seasons has scored over 20 professional goals.
