Former Nigeria junior international Musa Yahaya was giving his marching orders as Portuguese Segunda B leaders Porto B slumped to a 1-2 loss to Oliveirense.
Yahaya who has been ever present for the B team of the Portuguese giants was shown a straight red card in the 59th minute with scores at 1-1. His absence later cost his team a point as Diogo Valente scored a 73rd minute penalty to claim all three points for Oliveirense.
The red card was his second career red card with his first red card coming in the 4-0 win over Cova Piedade last season precisely on the 9th of April last year due to accumulated bookings in the game.
So far he has made 17 appearances this season with one goal to his name in what has been his most productive season, since his professional debut as a loan player from English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur to Portuguese side Portimonense.
His Nigerian counterpart at the club Chidera Ezeh who spent the first half of the season on loan to Portimonense was introduced as a substitute in the 68th minute, but the forward who was Musa’s national youth team colleague at the U17 and 20 for Nigeria failed to deliver his team from defeat.
They are presently the only two Nigerians with the B team of Porto, but overall as many as six Nigerians are on the books of the team with Nigeria international defender Chidozie Awaziem the most illustrious of them all.
