The vice captain of the senior national team of Nigeria Eddy Ogenyi Onazi put in a commendable shift for Trabzonspor in their 2-1 win over Galatasaray in a bad tempered Turkish Super Lig game.
Three players were sent off in the game with Galatasaray losing Sofiane Feghouli and Badou Ndiaye to red cards while Olcay Sahan was also red carded for Trabzonspor.
Onazi was on for the entire duration of the game, and he made sure his team weathered the storm following the sending off by covering up lot of grounds in the midfield, and also helping out in defence.
He only recently returned from the injury he picked while on international duty with Nigeria, in the game they won 1-0 against Zambia to seal their spot at next year World Cup in Russia.
Known for his high work rate in the middle, he was few details away from joining English Championship side Birmingham City, but work permit issues claimed the move leaving him with no option but to remain at Trabzonspor.
