Emmanuel Emenike’s Fenerbache pulled off a dramatic 1-1 draw at Zorya of Ukraine when they scored an equaliser five minutes into stoppage time.

Home team Zorya went in front after 52 minutes, but it was not until deep into stoppage that Turkish giants Fenerbache clawed back into the encounter.

Emenike, wearing a new dyed hair, was a 73rd minute substitute.

Also in the Europa League, compatriot Brown Ideye started, but was later replaced as Olympiacos won 1-0 at Swiss side Young Boys, while Nosa Igiebor started and finished as his Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv lost 4-3 at home to Russia’s Zenit.

Another Nigeria star, Olanrewaju Kayode, was an 82nd minute sub as Austrian Wien won 3-2 at Astra of Romania in another Europa League group game.
