Omeruo Stars In Leganes Home Draw With Atletico Madrid

Super Eagles defender,  Kenneth Omeruo put a fantastic performance for his La Liga club,  Leganes in their 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday.

Omeruo who joined the team on loan from Chelsea has now started commanding a first team jersey as he played full time in the game.
The former Ado Den Haag defender’s football career seems to be getting better following his move to Leganes and will play against South Africa in Nigeria’s AFCON qualifier later this month.
The game saw Atletico Madrid squandered lots of chances as a victory could have seen them toppled Barcelona.

The visitors took the lead through Antoine Griezmann who curled in a free kick in the 69th minute as they were certain to run home with the maximum three points.

With Diego Costa still sidelined due to injury,  Atletico failed to increase the lead.

Leganes would go ahead to share the spoils in the 82nd minute through Guido Carrillo as they now have nine points.
