Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo has recorded his first goal for Leganes in their 2-1 win over Real Sociedad in Sunday’s La Liga game at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Omeruo was handed his 15th league appearance this season, pairing his compatriot Chidozie Awaziem at the heart of Leganes’ defence.
The Super Eagles full-back made the most of the opportunity, helping the Cucumber Growers to return to winning ways after suffering a heavy 5-0 defeat to Barcelona last time out.
Alexander Isak opened the scoring for Real Sociedad in the 20th minute before Leganes levelled through Omeruo.
The 26-year-old, who has been with Leganes since the summer of 2018, surged forward in the 49th minute to inspire the comeback victory with his first goal for his side.
Oscar was the one who eventually grabbed the match-winning goal to help Javier Aguirre’s men clinch their fourth win of the season in front of their own fans.
Despite the victory, Javier Aguirre’s men remain in the bottom three of the league table with 18 points from 22 matches.
If they fail to defeat Levante on February 8, then relegation at the end of the season is imminent.
