In a thrilling Super Lig encounter on Monday, Bursaspor secured a remarkable 2-1 victory against Konyaspor, marking their second consecutive win and breaking free from a recent streak of three successive defeats in the league. Super Eagles defender, Shehu Abdullahi, expressed his elation at being part of this triumph and relished the opportunity to face Cameroonian legend Samuel Eto’o.
The clash unfolded with Eto’o taking the field for Konyaspor, later making way for Adis Jahovic in the 46th minute. Bursaspor’s Moussa Sow and Ertugal Esroy found the back of the net, while Adis Jahovic managed to score the visitors’ lone goal from a penalty kick.
Abdullahi, who joined Bursaspor in January from Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta, played a pivotal role in the team’s success, featuring in 16 league games this season. Following the exhilarating match, he took to Twitter to share his joy, stating, “Fantastic win tonight! Great 3 points! Always great to grace the pitch with football legends! Thank you @setoo9.”
The Super Eagles’ William Troost-Ekong also contributed to Bursaspor’s victory, stepping in as an 85th-minute substitute. Meanwhile, Mikel Agu, another Nigerian talent at the club, remained on the bench throughout the 90 minutes.
Bursaspor’s recent resurgence, particularly against formidable opponents like Konyaspor, reflects a promising turn of events for the Turkish club, instilling confidence in both players and fans alike.
