Chidinma Okeke’s Injury exposed Madrid as they fall 4-0 to Barcelona


Nigerian and Madrid CFF defender Chidinma Okeke was substituted after 25 minutes in Saturday’s La Liga match against league FC Barcelona.

Never let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey. I will be back stronger and better for @MadridCFF . Despite my injury, it felt great seeing my big Nigerian sister @AsisatOshoala . Thanks for being an inspiration!


Meanwhile, Barcelona went on to trounce their host 4-0; with Asisat Oshoala scoring a brace, before 2,000 spectators at the Centro Deportivo Municipal Luis Aragonés.
