On loan HNK Rijeka forward Theophilus Solomon made his debut for Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia in their comeback 2-1 away win over title contenders Anorthosis Famagusta .
Solomon joined the team on Saturday from Croatian side HNK Rijeka after terminating his loan deal with Serbian side Partizan Belgrade where he spent the first half of the season on loan.
Omonia were trailing Anorthosis 1-0 when the Nigerian was handed his debut, and he didn’t disappoint, as his introduction in the 72nd minute sparked a revival for his team.
Although former Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire got both goals for Omonia, Solomon started the move that lead to the goals of the English man in the 85th and 90th minute.
Out of favour Super Eagles midfielder Nosa Igiebor was on for the entire duration of the game for Anorthosis, but the former Real Betis man who joined the team from MLS Side Vancouver Whitecaps few weeks ago couldn’t rescue his side from defeat.
