Soccernet.ng highlights the involvement of Nigerian stars in the fourth-round fixtures of the English League Cup.
Wilfred Ndidi made his first start of the month for Leicester City as the Foxes ran out 3-0 winners over Newport County at the King Power Stadium.
Ndidi featured for 74 minutes, while compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho was a 62nd-minute substitute as goals from James Justin and Jamie Vardy (brace) lifted Brendan Rodgers’ men to the next round of the competition.
Alex Iwobi came in as a second-half substitute as Bournemouth took the carpet off the feet of Everton with a 4-1 thrashing at the Vitality Stadium.
The Toffees were trailing 2-0 by the time Iwobi was introduced in the 52nd minute, but even his intervention could not stop the Merseysiders from falling to another disappointing defeat.
At the Gtech Community Stadium, Frank Onyeka was in action for 72 minutes as Brentford were dumped out of the League Cup by lower league side Gillingham.
The Premier League campaigners could only manage a 1-1 draw in regulation time before coming short 5-6 on penalties in front of their home fans.
