The Nigeria internationals were on parade as the Cucumber Growers secured their first point of the season against the Mates

Kenneth Omeruo and Chidozie Awaziem helped Leganes secure a 1-1 stalemate against Valencia in Sunday’s La Liga game.

Omeruo was handed a starting role while Awaziem came off the bench to help the Cucumber Growers end a five-game losing run at Mestalla.

The visitors started the match on the back foot after conceding a penalty in the 21st minute, which Dani Parejo calmly dispatched for the opener.

 In the 35th minute, Oscar levelled for Mauricio Pellegrino’s men to ensure his side avoid defeat for the first time this season.

Omeruo featured from start to finish in the encounter while Awaziem replaced Aitor Ruibal in the 57th minute.
