Russian top division side UFA had their Nigerian duo to thank as their goals helped them to a 2-0 win over away to Arsenal Tula.

Nigerian players have huge history with the Russian league with the likes of Ahmed Musa, Osaze Odemwingie, Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Obinna Nsofor all playing for various teams in the past.

UFA turned to their Nigerian duo of Sylvester Igboun and Kehinde Fatai and they didn’t disappoint, with goals in the 45th and 80th minute of play.

Kehinde who joined the club in the summer from Czech side Sparta Praha now has four goals from nine games, a sign of how well the former Nigeria youth international has settled into his new surrounding.

26 year old Igboun who is in his second spell with the club is halfway through to his last season tally of 4 goals from 25 games, with two to his name already from 12 games.
