Super Eagles defender Elderson Echiejile was in superb form for his French side Monaco as they defeated Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in Italy on Tuesday.
The win was Monaco’s first in four pre-season games.
The Nigerian international started the encounter and provided an assist for the only goal scored by Ivan Cavaleiro in what was the winner in the 15th minute.
Echiejile played the Cavaleiro through on goal with a perfect pass for the Portuguese who beat the on rushing Alex McCarthy in goal for QPR.
The Nigerian was however replaced at half time by Layvin Kurzawa.
Monaco’s next game is against PSV on Friday.
