Nigeria players abroad: Stephen Odey nets winner in FC Zürich’s comeback victory over Leverkusen

Stephen Odey scored the match-winner in FC Zurich’s 3-2 comeback win against Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday.

The Nigerian scored from close range off Jagne Modou’s pass to help Zürich to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Europa League.

The goal — his first in a Uefa competition — took his tally to seven for the season.

Odey, 20, has settled into life at the Swiss club after initial struggles.

He scored Zürich’s last goal in the 3-3 draw with Young Boys in Saturday’s Swiss Super League game.
