Former captain of the Nigeria U20 team Abduljelil Ajagun scored a superb solo goal for Dutch side Roda JC Kerkrade who were forced to a 1-1 draw by AZ Alkmaar at their home ground, Parkstad Limburg Stadion.

Ajagun stole possession from the centre circle and embarked on a strong run straight into the opposition half before rifling an unstoppable drive into the corner to give his team the lead.

However his team were pegged back in the 59th minute when Wout Weghorst scored the leveller for the visitors, and they hanged on for a share of the spoils.

On his part, Ajagun who moved to Roda Jc in the summer from Greek giants Panathinaikos has emerged as one of the shining light of the Dutch side this season.

So far he has made 12 appearances for the team with today’s goal his first of the season. 23 year old Ajagun captained Nigeria at the 2013 World Cup in Colombia and also represented Nigeria at the 2011 edition, shortly after playing a key role for Nigeria at the U17 World Cup in 2009.
