Nigeria players abroad: Stephen Odey nets 11th goal of the season

Stephen Odey scored in the first half to help earn FC Zürich a 1-1 draw with Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday.

The strike took the forward’s season’s tally to two in the Europa League and 11 in all competitions.

Odey got his name on the scoresheet against the Bulgarian club when he headed in off Benjamin Kolilli’s freekick to give Zürich, who had already booked their spot in the knockout stages, the lead.

However, Jakub Swierczok found the back of the net just before the half-time whistle to ensure a share of the spoils.

Zürich finished second with 10 points — three behind Bayer Leverkusen.
