Chidi Nwakali (right) lunges at his opponent, studs out, and he is sent off

Nigeria midfielder Chidiebere Nwakali’s dangerous tackle, studs out, saw him being sent off after he scored in style the only goal for his Norwegian side Sogndal in a home win over Aalesund.

Nwakali, on loan from Manchester City, scored in the second minute from almost 30 yards when he curled a free kick home.

However, on a day, when he was awarded the best rating in the match (7.7), he was later sent off in the 84th minute, when he charged at an opponent after he had shrugged off a first challenge.

The 20-year-old player, who is better known as ‘Chidi in Norway’, has represented Nigeria at U17 and U20 levels.

He has previously played at Malaga, Girona (Spain) and IK Start (Norway).
