Chidera “Nigerian Iniesta” Ejike Steals The Headline In Norway After Superb Solo Goal For Valenrenga


19 year old Nigerian forward Chidera Ejike popularly referred to as Nigerian Iniesta scored a brilliant solo goal to propel Valerenga to a 2-1 win over Brann.


The manner which he scored the goal, which was his first in the league for the club he joined in the summer has made him one of the most talked about player in Norway at the moment.

Before scoring what ended as the winner for his side, he firstly set up the first goal which gave his team the lead in the game, and he almost doubled their lead from a rebound but he somehow skied his effort wide with the goalkeeper beaten.

However seven minutes from full time, he went on a mazy solo run, gliding past his markers with ease before unleashing a low shot which gave his team all three point.

Ejike had a two week trial at Liverpool last season, but the club opt against offering him a contract, leaving the quick, tricky and prolific wing forward with no option but to return back to Nigeria.
