Super Eagles winger, Chidera Ejuke scored his fourth goal of the season for Russian side CSKA Moscow as they overcame an early setback to defeat FC Krasnodar 3-1 to keep their European qualification hopes alive, AOIFootball.com reports.

 

Starting his 17th league game of the season, the former Gombe United attacker was heavily involved in the games first chance but the host failed to convert before finding themselves behind on 26 minutes.

 

Marcus Berg set up Viktor Claesson just inside the box with the midfielder sending Akinfiev the wrong way to give his side a priceless 1-0 lead.

 

Ejuke however leveled matter six minutes later, curling home from inside the box before substitute Solomon Rondon set up Fedor Chalov three minutes after his introduction to make it 2-1 and complete the comeback.

 

Left-back Mario Fernandes then sealed the win 20 minutes from time with a smart finish as the hosts wrapped up victory in what was their last home league game of the campaign.

 

With just 2 caps to his name with Nigeria, the tricky winger ended the game with a rating of 6.8, taking his tally to six for goals this campaign.
