Super Eagles fringe left back Stanley Amuzie did his chance of making his first team bow for Sampdoria with a strong showing for their Primavera side in a League game against Spezia.
Signed in the summer after starring for Nigeria at the Olympics in Rio, where Nigeria won bronze, the nearly six feet tall left back has failed to progress at the Serie A side as expected.
Amuzie is yet to play for the first team, although he has made the bench for some of their games. He has however grown into one of the main stay of the Primavera side in the Campionato Primavera Girone A.
Last weekend he earned a rating of 7 out of 10 in their 1-1 draw against Spezia, after a commanding performance at left back, where he was a link for his side in turning defence into attack.
Very noticeable with his headband on, he twice delivered pin point ball across the goal of the opponents but none of his teammate was close to turn the ball in.
However, Spezia’s Nigerian midfielder turn central defender Tahir Maigini was rated the best defender on the pitch, with the former Rijeka trainee earning a rating of 7.5.
