Taye Taiwo scores to earn Bursaspor 2-2 draw in Europa League qualifying

The Super Eagles defender began his career in Turkey with his new club on a good note by scoring the equaliser against Vojvodina
Taye Taiwo could not have wished for a better start to his career in Turkey as he helped Bursaspor salvage a 2-2 draw away to Vojvodina in the 3rd qualifying round for the Europa League on Thursday.

Taiwo scored in the 90th minute to give the Turkish club a good result before the return leg next week. The left-back transferred to Bursaspor last month to resurrect a career that has fallen on hard times since he transferred to AC Milan from Marseille two seasons ago.

He played on loan at Queens Park Rangers and then Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine before signing a four year deal with Bursaspor last month.

In another match, Kehinde Fatai scored for Romanian side, Astra Giurgui as they beat Trencin of Slovakia 3-1 away. The 23-year old scored the third goal in the 58th minute and was replaced in the 78th minute by Mirko Ivanovski.

Also in the Europa League on Thursday, Imoh Ezekiel helped Standard Liege to a 2-1 away win over Xanthi of Greece. Imoh started the game and was replaced in the 62nd by Michy Batshuayi.
