Former Nigeria Professional Football League goal king, Anthony Okpotu began life in Tunisia with a bang, scoring on his debut for US Monastir as they defeated CS Sfaxien 2-1 on the opening day of the Tunisian League, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 25-year-old recently made a return to North Africa after a brief spell on loan at Albanian side KF Laci and was immediately thrown into the starting XI for the host team.
The former Lobi Stars forward however needed just 16 minutes to announce his presence as he opened scoring for the hosts, a lead they held going into half time.
Tunisian forward Alaeddine Marzouki then equalized for Sfaxien ten minutes from time before another Nigerian Moses Orkuma sealed all three points for them two minutes later as he converted from 12 yards.
Okpotu will now hope for a better 2019/2020 season after an injury-ravaged 2018 season which saw him struggle at Moroccan side Difaa Hassani El-Jadidi before moving to Albania for the rest of the campaign.
