Former Nigeria Junior International Fatai Powers Russian Club To Shock Away Win Over Spartak Moscow


Former Nigeria U-20 forward Kehinde Fatai was the hero for his Russian side UFA, scoring the lone goal as the shock Russian giants and league leaders Spartak Moscow 1-0 away from home.


Fatai joined UFA in the summer from Czech Republic side Sparta Praha, where he scored 15 league goals in two seasons at the club. After scoring his first goal for his new side against Terek Grozny in August, he ended the drought with a 39th minute strike.

He now has two goals in five games for the modest Russian side who also have out of favour Nigerian midfielder Slyvester Igboun on their payroll as well.

While Igboun was replaced in time added on after regulation time, Fatai was removed 16 minutes from time as UFA pick up their second big away win after last weekend win away to Lokomotive Moscow.

The victory moved UFA to 8th on the log standing while Spartak Moscow are still top despite the defeat.
