88449445 Full House As Musa And Onuachu Arrive At Super Eagles' Camp

Al Nassr’s Ahmed Musa and Genk’s Paul Onuachu have arrived in Nigeria’s camp ahead of this week’s international friendlies against Algeriaand Tunisia.
The duo are the last of the players to arrive at the team’s base in Austriaas Gernot Rohr now has his players available for training.
Onuachu was handed a late call-up after Victor Osimhen of Napoliwas excused from the Desert Foxes and Carthage Eagles’ games because of travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
*After seven seasons at FC Midtjylland, the gangling striker joined the Belgian elite division outfit in 2019. This season, he has been impressive for Jess Thorup’s men having scored seven goals in seven games in the 2020-21 campaign.
For Musa, who naturally takes over the mantle of leadership from John Obi Mikel, he is expected to add attacking bite to the squad in the games that will serve as build-up for November’s double-header Africa Cup of Nationsqualifier against Sierra Leone.
This term, he is yet to feature for Rui Vitoria’s Najd’s Knight as speculation about him leaving the King Fahd Stadium, Riyadh became intense.
Four days after taking on the reigning African champions, Rohr’s team will face the Carthage Eagles at Jacques Lehmans Arena.
Since defeating Lesotho 4-2 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Maseru’s Setsoto Stadium on November 17, 2019, Nigeria are yet to play a match in 2020 owing to the Covid-19 outbreak.
FULL SQUAD
*Goalkeepers: Dele Alampasu (FK Ventspils, Latvia); Matthew Yakubu (SKF Sered, Slovakia); Maduka Okoye (Sparta Rotterdam, The Netherlands)
*Defenders: Kenneth Omeruo (CD Leganes, Spain); Leon Balogun (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland); Chidozie Awaziem (FC Boavista, Portugal); William Ekong ( UdineseFC, Italy); Olaoluwa Aina ( FulhamFC, England); Jamilu Collins (SC Paderborn 07, Germany); Oluwasemilogo Ajayi (West Bromwich Albion, England); Zaidu Sanusi (FC Porto, Portugal)

Ajax Beats VVV – Venlo 13 – 0, Lassina Traore Scores Five

Dutch giants Ajax recorded the biggest victory in Eredivisie history with a 13-0 thrashing at mid-table side VVV-Venlo, who had a player sent off.
Ajax, who lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday, surpassed their previous record – a 12-1 win over Vitesse in 1972.
Teenager Lassina Traore scored five, while Jurgen Ekkelenkamp, 20, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, 37, scored twice.
Dusan Tadic, Antony, Daley Blind and Lisandro Martinez scored the rest.
Defender Christian Kum, 35, was sent off for VVV-Venlo in the second half with the team already trailing 4-0.
Burkina Faso international Traore, 19, scored the most goals in a Dutch top-flight match since September 2019, when Donyell Malen netted the same amount for PSV Eindhoven against Vitesse.
He also became the first Ajax player to record five goals in an Eredivisie match since Marco van Basten in 1985 (six) and the first from the club to record three assists in a league match since Frenkie de Jong in 2017.
Traore was two goals short of the Eredivisie record set by former Middlesbrough striker Afonso Alves, who scored seven for Heerenveen against Heracles in October 2007.
In terms of biggest winning margins, Ajax’s victory on Saturday was not only the largest in Eredivisie history, but joint-second in the club’s history in all competitions.
Ajax’s biggest win was back in 1984 when they hammered Differdange 14-0 in the Europa League (previously the Uefa Cup).
It was the first time in a decade that any team were able to score at least 10 goals in a single Eredivisie game since PSV recorded a 10-0 win over Feyenoord.
On a day to forget for VVV-Venlo, it was the biggest defeat in the club’s history, surpassing the previous record which was a 10-1 loss to FC Eindhoven in the Eerste Divisie in 1964.
In the Eredivisie, their previous heaviest defeats were by seven-goal margins to Ajax, Heracles Almelo and AZ Alkmaar.

In the sixth minute of play, Real Madrid kept possession wonderfully well, showing a great deal of patience in their pursuit of an opening goal and it was their best move of the season.

Karim Benzema laid on an inch-perfect pass to the onrushing South American, who would then place a fine side-footed shot past Neto in the Barcelona goal. The move itself passed through all areas of the pitch, but it was Toni Kroos who unlocked the defence as Sergio Ramos dealt with forward pressure from Lionel Messi.

Ramos laid the ball to Nacho, who fired the ball to Benzema who then made the decisive assist, with the French forward showing remarkable vision to see Valverde’s run.

With this goal, the Uruguayan is now Los Blancos’ second highest scorer this term with two goals, and is already showing a greater aptitude for getting forward and contributing than he did in his debut campaign.
