Ivory Coast born Nigerian winger, Blessing Olabiran Muyiwa came off the bench to grab a goal that sealed a vital 1-0 away win for his new football club, FK Tambov who are fighting for a promotion to the Russia Premier League.
This was only the winger’s third appearance of the season for the club since joining in August and he went on to do his fight for a starting shirt no harm by scoring the 85th minute winner which helped his team move four points above the team in third position on the log.
Speaking to www.footballive.ng he said, “It feels really good to get my first goal for FK Tambov especially as it came as the winner in a very crucial away match.”
Olabiran who as never hidden his desire to play for Nigeria ahead of the Ivory Coast at National Level said, “I have turned down several offers by the Ivory Coast youth teams [Under-17 and Under-20] because I only want to represent Nigeria and I hope my performance with FK Tambov in the Russia second tier would get me an invite to the Nigeria U-23 team ahead of the qualifiers in November.”
The 2016/2017 Uzbekistan Premier League Best young player concluded by thanking the team technical crew, his teammates, the FK Tambov fans even as he promised to continue to work very hard to ensure promotion into the Russia Premier League.
