Onyekuru: Nigeria Star Reacts After Making Olympiacos Debut In Europa League win

Nigeria international Henry Onyekuru was delighted to have made his debut for Olympiacos in their 3-0 Uefa Europa League victory over Slovan Bratislava on Thursday.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Greece giants from Ligue 1 club Monaco on a permanent deal, was introduced in the 74th minute for Mathieu Valbuena as his side took the advantage heading into the return leg fixture.

It was Guinea player Aguibou Camara who put Olympiacos ahead in the 37th minute before Senegal’s Pape Cisse added the second in the 52nd minute for a 2-0 half-time lead at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

In the 68th minute, Olympiacos were 3-0 up after defender Vasil Bozhikov turned the ball into his own net a sweeping cross from Cisse and seven minutes later, Onyekuru came on for his debut.

Though he did not find the back of the net, Onyekuru created two chances which were not converted by Cisse, and also watched his powerful shot from outside the 18-yard box go inches wide.
