EaglesInEurope: Osimhen on target again as season ends

It was curtains drawn in the 2019 domestic leagues at the weekend with Victor Osimhen the only Super Eagles player to find the back of the net.

A final wrap on the performances of the players during what has been a very long season for them at their respective European clubs.

We start with the trip to Belgium where Osimhen made it goal number 20 in all competitions for Sporting Charleroi.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring against Royal Antwerp but his goal was not enough to help his side as Antwerp twice came from behind to win 3-2 in the playoffs final.

A disappointing end for the team but for Osimhen, he ends the season on a high.

In France, Samuel Kalu was on the pitch for 67 minutes as Bordeaux won their final Ligue 1 match 0-1 at Caen.

Paul Onuachu was a notably absent as Midtjylland were beaten 1-2 at home by Esbjerg FB in the Danish playoff.

For John Ogu, his last match in Israel for Hapoel Beer Sheva ended in a heavy defeat as Maccabi Tel Aviv put four goals past them.

Ogu played from start to finish before he received an emotional farewell from the home fans.

The defensive midfielder played 203 matches during a five-year spell at Beer Sheva, scoring 17 goals.

For our Super Lig players, it was not a memorable end for them in terms of their final games of the season.

Henry Onyekuru played for 45 minutes, picking up a yellow as champions Galatasaray ended the campaign on a losing note, 4-3 to Sivasspor.

After the game, Onyekuru joined his teammates in a lavish title celebration, with the young forward introduced in a proper Naija way.

Anthony Nwakaeme spoiled the day for Chidozie Awaziem and his Rizespor team by setting up two goals in Trabzonspor 3-2 win over Rizespor.

Both were on the pitch from start to finish.

Shehu Abdullahi was not listed in Bursaspor 2-1 victory at Yeni Malatyaspor.

Finally, we end with a trip to Serie A, where William Troost-Ekong will still be playing when the new Italian season begins later this year.

Troost-Ekong and Udinese preserved their Serie A status with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Cagliari. The Oyibo Wall member was on the pitch for 90 minutes.

The performance of the last day, however, went to Ola Aina, who ended his loan spell at Torino with a man of the match display at Lazio.

The Chelsea man grabbed an assist, created the most chances (4), and added three tackles as Torino defeated Lazio 3-1. What a way to end your stay in Italy!
