By Johnny Edward: Super Eagles striker Olanrewaju Kayode returned to action for Girona on Sunday in their 1-0 win over Getafe after missing his side’s last three games due to a muscle injury, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The win was Girona’s third straight victory in the Spanish LaLiga Santander and they are sixth in the table with 23 points from 16 games.
Kayode came on for Christian Stuani for the last 15 minutes of the encounter. Stuani scored the game’s only goal in the fourth minute.
The Nigerian international has made 11 appearances so far for Girona in LaLiga (two starts and nine substitute appearances) and he is yet to score so far this term.
He is one of the five Manchester City players ( Douglas Luiz, Marlos Moreno,Aleix Garcia and Pablo Maffeo) on loan at the Catalan side.
Girona face Eibar in their next game on Thursday.
Kayode, a former Nigeria U-17 and U-20 striker, joined Girona on a season-long loan deal from English Premier League side Manchester City last summer.
