Anichebe, Ujah On Target As Osaze Returns

By Johnny Edward:

Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe was on target for West Brom in their 4-1 win over Swindon Town on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Nigerian international doubled his side’s lead in the 22nd minute after James Morrison had put the Baggies ahead in the ninth minute.

In Germany, Anthony Ujah grabbed his eighth pre-season goal for Werder Bremen who defeated Europa League winners Sevilla 2-0.

The former Cologne forward rifled home a powerful shot in the 32nd minute after Felix Kroos stuck from the spot.

In England, Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie returned to Stoke City’s starting line-up in pre-season as the Potters slumped to a 2-0 loss to Championship side Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.

The 33-year-old who missed his side’s 6-0 win against Wrexham last Wednesday was replaced at half-time of the defeat.

Odemwingie was replaced by Bojan Krikic.
