It was a dream debut start for German-born Nigerian left-back Felix Agu who scored his first Bundesliga goal on Saturday to help his Werder Bremen side to an impressive 2-0 home win over Augsburg, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 21-year-old German youth international who remains very much eligible to play for The Super Eagles of Nigeria at senior level started his first-ever league game for the Die Werderaner who were targeting their first win of the new Calendar year.
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Czech Republic defender Theodor Gabre Selassie opened scoring for the hosts with six minutes left in regulation time before Agu then made it 2-0 three minutes later with a fine finish to seal all 3 points for the host.
The former VFL Osnabruck defender had an impressive game rating of 7.5, completing 82% of his passes, winning 9 duels, making 3 clearances and 3 key tackles too.
Elsewhere in Berlin, Super Eagles and Liverpool FC of England loanee Taiwo Awoniyi failed to add to his 5 Bundesliga goals as he fired blanks for Union Berlin in their hard-fought 1-0 win over Bayern Leverkusen.
The former U-17 World Cup winner was withdrawn 15 minutes from time before half time substitute Cedric Teuchert grabbed the match-winner two minutes from time to take Berlin to 5th on the log.
Finally, at the Energy Stadium in Cologne, one-time Eagles invitee Kingsley Ehizibue made a return to the starting XI for the first time since October of 2020 as his FC Koln side were forced to a goalless draw by visiting Hertha Berlin.
The 25-year-old full-back saw 78 minutes of action before he was replaced whilst Tolu Arokodare was an unused sub for the hosts.
