On loan FC Porto midfielder Mikel Agu scored his first goal for his loan side Bursaspor to power them to a 3-1 win over Osmanlispor in a Turkish top division league game.
Agu put his team 2-1 up in the 38th minute, a lead which they later made 3-1 minutes after they were reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Jires Kembo-Ekoko fifteen minutes from full time.
The goal was the first for Agu who have been ever present for the Turkish side since his move in the summer from FC Porto, and has earned three more caps for Nigeria within same period.
However he was roundly criticised for his performance in Nigeria’s last two World Cup 2018 Qualifiers particularly in the away game to Cameroon in Yaounde.
In the same game his Nigerian national team colleague William Troost-Ekong was on for the entire duration of the game and played a big role in keeping out of favour Super Eagles duo of Raheem Lawal and Aminu Umar silent , with the duo failing to get on the score sheet despite playing the entire duration of the game for Osmanlispor.
