Igiebor grabs equalizer as Betis hold Fulham in friendly

The Nigerian midfielder helped his side secure a draw in a friendly match in London on Monday

Nosa Igiebor grabbed a rare goal for Real Betis as the Spanish team held Fulham to a 1-1 draw on Monday at Craven Cottage.

The London side drew first blood as they scored from a header by Steve Sidwell from a corner kick in the 13th minute.

Betis leveled matters in the second half through the Nigerian as he played a one-two with Juanfan and fired a low shot past Martin Stekelenburg from inside the box.

The 22-year-old was thought to be on the brink of being sold but has been featuring in pre-season which might mean that he is now in coach Pepe Mel’s plans.

Igiebor has been told to change his attitude by Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi and it seems that message has seeped through as the Nigerian prepares to better his last season’s statistics of playing 16 games – 11 from the bench, and scoring just one goal.
