Young striker Victor Boniface has continued to make a big case for himself with a goal and an assist for table toppers Bodo/Glimt in Norway, while Chidera Ejuke and David Okereke opened their goals account at their respective bases this weekend.

It is becoming increasingly likely that the 19-year-old striker will not be staying for long in Norway after he scored again and provided an assist for league leaders Bodo/Glimt to thrash Odd 6-1. This was his sixth goal in the league this season. It was only last year he was sidelined for most of the season with a long-term injury just almost after he moved to Europe.
The former Golden Eaglets forward helped himself to a brace as Danish club Fremad Amagar to cruise to a convincing 6-0 win on the opening day of the league season. It would be recalled that he delivered a hat-trick on his debut in the Danish cup to now have five goals in just two games.
He won this Battle of the Super Eagles as Monaco beat FC Nantes parading Moses Simon 2-1 in a Ligue 1 clash today. Onyekuru provided the assist for the winning goal as he continues to gradually establish himself at the Principality outfit after returning from loan at Galatasaray.
The former Spezia of Italy star must have taken a lot of weight off his shoulders when he opened his goals account for the season in Club Brugge 4-1 home win over Waasland-Beveren. Last season, he netted nine goals in the league and a lot more is expected of him even though he currently plays on the left side of attack for the Belgian champions.
The dazzling winger has already begun to justify the 12 million Euros CSKA Moscow splashed on him to move from Dutch club SC Heerenveen after he scored in a 3-1 home win over city rivals Spartak. He could not have hoped for a bigger occasion than this derby to announce his arrival in Russia to the fans of the army team.
