Togo’s Emmanuel Adebayor (Istanbul BB) and Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o (Antalyaspor) are among the African footballers who continue to enhance the image of the continent through football. These two strikers managed to score important goals for their respective teams last weekend.
While Samuel Eto’o managed to get his Antalyaspor team out of a defeat by equalizing to bring the score down to (1-1), the Togolese striker succeeded in scoring a sumptuous goal. Emmanuel Adebayor has indeed propelled the ball under the crossbar with a shot of ball, before celebrating its realization by imitating a … kangaroo. But a few minutes before the goal, Ghana’s Joseph Attamah, opened the scoring for Istanbul BB in the second minute. Moroccan Nabil Dirar managed to reduce the score for Fenerbahçe by exploiting a loose ball.
It should be said for this weekend in the Turkish championship, Emmanuel Adebayor and Samuel Eto’o made a very good impression on the play areas, and allowed their clubs to achieve good results. Samuel Eto’o gives Antalyaspor a draw when Emmanuel Adebayor scored his team’s victorious goal.
Two other not very well known African ones also caused a sensation. Congolese Dzon Delarge put Bursaspor’s second of three goals against Akhisar: the striker cleared the opposing goalkeeper from a dribble before slipping the ball into the net. Nigeria’s Ogenyi Onazi completed Trabzonspor’s 3-1 success against Gençlerbirliği.
