Nigeria striker Afolabi Okiki hopes he will enjoy a better run in the top league in Argentina after he finally made his debut at table-topping Estudiantes.
Okiki’s Talleres Cordoba held hosts Estudiantes to a goalless draw and the former Sunshine Stars striker started the game.
The 21-year-old striker played for 46 minutes and was booked in the 41st
minutes before he was replaced.
“It was great to finally make my debut for my club in Argentina after I have proved myself with the second team,” Okiki said.
“I hope to now get a decent chance in the main team.
“I am not coming down to Nigeria for the Christmas holidays because I wish to focus a lot more so that I could establish myself quickly in the first team.”
Okiki’s club are now ninth on the Primera Division with 20 points from 13 matches.
