On loan Arsenal midfielder Kelechi Nwakali was on for the entire duration of Porto B 1-0 win over Sporting Braga B in a Portuguese second division game which helped them move to up to 9th on the log.
Nwakali has his first full game for the first time since August for the club he joined in the summer on a season long loan deal from Arsenal. His performance was way better than in the 2-2 draw against Benfica over the weekend.
The other Nigerian at the club Musa Yahaya was also on for the away tie and in his new role as the right wing-back of the team, he appears to have grown into the position he started playing last season.
He was booked in the 49th minute for foul play and bar that incident, the recently turned 21 year old had a game to remember as he combined effortlessly with the attack of his team without compromising his defensive duties.
Already pushing for a loan move, his performance in today’s game will no doubt brighten his chances of leaving Porto temporarily before the end of the January transfer window.
