Nigerians in English Premier League

Osaze-Odemwingie1-360x244

Hull City 2-0 Manchester City

Sonie Aluko was a 46th minute substitute for Maynor Figueroa as his team went down to the Citizens at home despite Manchester City playing 80 minutes of the game with 10 men after Vincent Kompany was shown a red card in the 10th minute.

Sonie Aluko only returned to action this year after a lengthy spell on the sidelines. He will be hoping his performance will catch the eye of Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi and wriggle his way into Nigeria’s World Cup squad.
