Super Eagles maestro Oghenekato Etebo was the star man for his team CD Feirense in their 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese Liga.

Etebo ran the midfield of Sporting Lisbon ragged with good turn of pace, smart dribbles and tackles, which help him to break up attacks and set his team on their way to goal.

He won three free kicks for his team as Sporting Lisbon struggled to keep him at bay but his most telling contribution came in the 69th minutes when he was hacked down in the box.

The Nigeria Rio 2016 Olympic star ghost past two Sporting Lisbon defenders around the box, leaving the third defender to bring him down as he was already through on goal. His teammate Tiago Silvaa grabbed his brace by carefully tucking home the resultant penalty.

Victory for CD Feirense ensured they remain in the hunt for a Europa league spot with just three points separating them from sixth placed Maritimo who are occupying the last Europa League qualification spot.
