Forgotten Super Eagles defender Azubuike Egwuekwe scored at the wrong end minutes after his Nigerian counterpart Gbolahan Salami has given his side the lead but still ended on the winning side as KuPS edge a thrilling contest 2-1 against FC Inter.

Salami netted his first goal of the two games old Finnish League in the 28th minute but nine minutes later Egwuekwe scored an own goal to bring scores to 1-1, a score which FC Inter maintained till the half time break.

Twelve minutes from full time, Egwuekwe costly error was redeemed by Ats Purje who netted what ended as the winner to hand KuPS their first win of the season in what was their first game at home this season,

They started their campaign with a 0-2 loss away to HJK last weekend, and so far all three Nigerian players on their books with Rueben Gabriel completing the trio have all played in the games, although Gabriel has twice been introduced as a substitute.
