Premier League: Nigeria Youngster In Action, As Haaland Set EPL On Fire Again


Action resumed in the 2023/2024 English Premier League on Friday with the defending champions Manchester City thrashing the newly promoted Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor.

Norwegian international Erling Braut Haaland continued from where he left off last season as he netted a brace in the game.

Another high point of the game was the debut of the Nigeria-eligible player Lucas Koleosho.

The 18-year-old is eligible to represent the US, Canada, Nigeria, and Italy, as he was born and raised in the United States to a Nigerian father and an Italian-Canadian mother.

The skilful winger surprisingly made the starting lineup and was replaced in the 61st minute of the game.

Rodri sealed the game with the third goal in the 75th minute as the Citizens sent a warning signal to the rest of the teams.
