Super Eagles left-back, Bryan Idowu got 90 minutes action this weekend as Lokomotiv Moscow continued their impressive form on the road with a 2-0 win over Akhmat Grozny in the Russian Premier League.

Idowu, who has struggled to hold down a regular spot this season, made his sixth appearance for the PL leaders and only his third full appearance in the league this term.

Friday’s victory ensured the three times league winners clocked in a tenth consecutive win, albeit only separated by goals difference from second placed Zenit.

The performance of the team bodes well for Idowu, who has been thrown out of contention but on the
periphery of the national team.

He could return to the Super Eagles set next month for the 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Benin Republic (November 13) and Lesotho (November 19).
