Nwakali’s Maastricht holds Ajagun’s Roda JC in stalemate


The Netherland Eredivisie qualification playoffs saw two Nigerians in Abduljeleel Ajagun and Kelechi Nwakali on Thursday square up against each other.

The former Nigerian junior internationals featured for MVV Maastricht’s 0-0 draw against Roda JC Kerkrade.

Kelechi Nwakali on loan from Arsenal, played the entire 90 minutes for MVV Maastricht while Abduljeleel Ajagun featured for Roda JC and also played the entire 90 minutes as both players battled in midfield but failed to provide the winning edge for their teams to no avail.

In Germany, former U-17 record goal scorer Victor Osimhen was an unused substitute for Wolfsburg who took a slim 1-0 advantage over Eintracht Braunschweig in the first leg of  Bundesliga qualification playoffs on Thursday night.

Wolfsburg will wait till Monday when the return leg takes place to see if they will remain in the German top flight, and Nigerian young star Victor Osimhen will hope to get a chance to help his team avoid an embarrassing relegation.

Osimhen withdrew from the Nigerian camp in France to help Wolfsburg retain their Bundesliga status.
