Ahmed Musa leads Nigeria stars in Champions League
Fatai’s Czech club Sparta Prague must now fancy their chances to advancing to the group stage of the Champions League after they forced their hosts to a 2-2 draw inside Arena Khimki.
CSKA took a 14th
minute lead, before former Nigeria U20 and U23 striker Fatai netted the equaliser a minute after.
Sparta Prague were the more daring, recording five shots on target against none by the home team and played two corners, while CSKA managed only one.
Fatai was then replaced in the 57th
minute possibly to ensure he was sent off after he was booked in first half stoppage time.
Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa played the entire duration of the clash.
Both players started their careers for the now defunct JUTH FC of Jos.
