No Heart scare concerns for Super Eagles winger, plays 90 minutes in France

No Heart scare concerns for Super Eagles winger, plays 90 minutes in France

Samuel Kalu played all 90 minutes on Saturday, in a competitive game, for the first time since January 2019.

Kalu suited up for Bordeaux in this season’s Ligue Un opener against Angers, but Les Girondins got off to a bad start, as they hammered 3-1 on the road.

 


They had taken an early lead; inside the opening four minutes, but the hosts struck in the 27th minute to draw level.

 

In the 33rd they took the lead and a third goal came in the 45th minute to extend the domination and jump into a comfortable lead.

 

But it wasn’t a quite night for the Nigerian, who was rated 7.0 per whoscored.com – the second best performance by a Bordeaux player.

 

Playing from the wings, in a five-man midfield, the Nigeria international showed his dribbling skills and unusual aerial prowess.

 

His performance on Saturday confirms the player has the clear to return fully to action after a major scare at the AFCON 2019, when he collapsed during a practice session.
