UEL: Olayinka Peter, Praha get another Super Eagles duo 

European football governing body, UEFA has not had enough of the Nigerian wars after Olayinka Peter and Slavia Praha were drawn against another Super Eagles duo in the Europa League UELdraw.

Peter and his Czech Republic club have been drawn against Scottish champions, Rangers football club, who have Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo on their payroll, in the Europa League round of 16.
