Super Eagles watch: Moses nets winner against Rizespor, Shehu scores first goal of the season

Victor Moses scored the winning goal, as Fenerbahçe saw off Rizespor 3-2 in a Süper Lig fixture on Saturday.

The Nigerian netted from the penalty spot late on to secure The Yellow Canaries all three points, to boost their survival hopes.

The Istanbul club went behind through Ali Kaldirim, who hit the back of the wrong net. Serdar Aziz and Roberto Soldado then got their names on the score sheet to give the home side a 2-1 lead, only for Croatian defender Dario Melnjak to equalize.

However, Moses stepped up to score an 84th-minute penalty to deny Rizespor — who finished the game with 10 men — a point.

The on-loan Chelsea player was substituted after 90 minutes.

However, his compatriot Chidozie Awaziem, who was listed alongside Aminu Umar and Okechukwu Azubuike in the Rizespor starting XI, was on the pitch for the entirety of the game. Umar and Okechukwu were substituted in the second half.

At Timsah Arena, Abdullahi Shehu rose brilliantly to head home Yusuf Erdogan’s delightful cross to score his first goal of the season and help Bursaspor defeat Sivasspor 3-2.

It was the Green Crocodiles’ first win in ten Süper Lig matches.
