Super Eagles striker Obinna Nsofor on Tuesday made his debut for his new South African premier league side Cape Town city in their 1-0 loss to Orlando Pirates.
The Former Inter Milan forward signed for the newly promoted side last week and was doubtful for the clash due to fitness problems but was declared fit for the encounter on Tuesday afternoon.
Obinna who starred for German bundesliga 2 side, Darmstadt last season was thrown into the fray in the 71st minute for Michael Majoro.
But his introduction did little to prevent Orlando Pirates from getting the much needed goal through Thabo Qalinge.
Saturday will be another opportunity for Nsofor to stake a claim for a starting place when Cape Town City will be hosting Polokwane stars.
