Echiejile scores first LaLiga goal for Sporting Gijon


Super Eagles of Nigeria left full back, Elderson Echiejile scored a beautiful goal for Sporting Gijon in their Monday night 1-3 loss to Real Sociedad at Aneota.

Echiejile who is on loan from Monaco was named in the starting line up for Sporting Gijon after missing some games.

A well taken left footed shot from inside the 18 yard box by Echiejile turned out to be only a consolation goal after Sociedad had scored 3 goals already.

Incidentally Echiejile’s last goal was against another Spanish side, Valencia in a UEFA champions league encounter while still at Monaco last season.

Echiejile has now played 13 games so far this season for both Standard liege and Sporting Gijon on loan from Monaco.
