Nwakali nets few minutes into debut for new club


Newly acquired VVV Venlo midfielder and Nigeria junior international Kelechi Nwakali on Sunday scored a goal few minutes into his debut as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Groningen.

The Nigerian joined the Dutch Eredivisie side on loan from Arsenal and has hit the ground running scoring on his debut.

Groningen scored in the first half of the encounter through Mimoun Mahi and even missed a penalty in the second half before the introduction of Nwakali.

The 19-year-old came on in the 75th minute and immediately contributed greatly into the game by levelling with a header deep into stoppage time.

The draw places Venlo in 8th position with seven points.
