Kingsley Sokari scored what ended up as a consolation despite been the opening goal as his Tunisian side CS Sfaxien slumped to a 2-1 loss away to Club Africain.
Sokari drew first blood for his side by breaking the deadlock in the 51st minute for his third goal of the season in Tunisia, but a brace from Matthew Rusike condemned them to a 1-2 loss.
This season is proving to be his best in front of goal, aside his usual contribution in the midfield of his team where he has three assist to his name.
The former Nigeria youth international almost left the club during the January transfer window, but the move failed to see the light of the day due to Sfaxien asking price.
He was reportedly priced out of a move to French side Metz, and the club’s subsequent transfer ban by FIFA over an unresolved transfer dispute made them pull all the stop to keep him.
