Chikatara Fires Blanks On Wydad Debut


By Adeboye Amosu:

Chisom Chikatara made his long awaited debut for Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca in Wednesday's 4-3 penalty shootout win against Saudi side AlNassr in the Tabuk  International Tournament in Saudi Arabia, reports

The forward, who recently linked up with the John Toshack-led side  from Nigeria Professional Football League club Abia Warriors after a long transfer tussle, started the game and was replaced by Ondama in the 62nd minute.

Chikatara was expected to play his first official game for the former African champions in last week's CAF Champions League 1-0 home loss against Egyptian side Al Ahly but was not  listed for action.

The game ended in a 0-0 draw and in the ensuing penalty shootout, Wydad converted four of their spot kicks, while AlNassr could only scored three.

Toshack's men will face Entag El Harbi in the final of the TFIT competition.
