Nsofor lifts Lokomotiv Moscow

Nsofor on target for Lokomotiv

Obinna Nsofor came off bench to score his second goal of the season for Lokomotiv Moscow away at Terek Grzny on Saturday night.

Nsofor, who replaced Giushakov in the 57th minute, found the back of the net in the 83rd minute to dash their hosts’ hope of recovery by giving his team a 2-0 lead. Lokomotiv eventually won 3-0.

An elated Nsofor told MTNFootball.com he was excited with his personal contribution as his Russian club aim for the top.

“It was a great game and I am excited that I contributed to the victory with a goal,” said Nsofor, who has been overlooked by Nigeria as he fights to regain full fitness after a knee problem.

“We have been doing well and I hope we will continue this way and even get better so that our goals will be achieved.”

Lokomotiv now occupy second spot with 19 points from nine games behind leaders CSKA Moscow, who parade Nigeria flying winger Ahmed Musa.
