By James Agberebi: Super Eagles defender Shehu Abdullahi is excited to be back from suspension for Anorthosis who forced home side Omonia Nicosia to a 1-1 draw in the Cyprus top flight on Saturday.
Abdullahi had been shown a straight red card in Anorthosis’ 1-1 home draw against Apollon on October 14, thereby missing two games.
In the game against Omonia Nicosia, Abdullahi featured for 90 minutes as Ferreira Douglao grabbed a 90th minute equaliser for Anorthosis, cancelling out Rafael Lopes’ 56th minute opener.
“Nicosia 1-1 Anorthosisfc. Crucial away point, I’m excited to return to action. Unbeaten run still intact,” Shehu wrote on his Twitter.
“Thanks travelling @anorthosisfc fans. Amazing support we got!!! #WeAreAnorthosis. #NeverGiveUp. #UntilTheEnd.”
Anorthosis are second on 20 points in the 14-team league table.
AEK Larnaca are top on 22 points.
