UCL: SUPER EAGLES DEFENDER ZAIDU SANUSI SCORES IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES INTO THE GAME AS PORTO DEFEATS BAYERN LEVERKUSEN 2-0
FC Porto defeated Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 thanks in part to goals from Super Eagles defender Zaidu Sanusi. Shortly after entering the game, the former Santa Clara left-back started the scoring.
FC Porto, a dominant team from Portugal, needed a win after falling to Club Brugge in their previous game to revive their chances of qualifying for the tournament.
In the 63rd minute, with the score at 0-0, Porto manager Sergio Conceicao looked to his bench and substituted 25-year-old defender Zaidu Sanusi for Wendell. The switch paid off after seven minutes.
