|Super Eagles Goalie, Maduka Okoye Attacked After Spectacular Performance (Video)|
Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye was the centre of attraction in Sparta Rotterdam’s away game at Vitesse Arnhem as he ran off a pitch invader during the Dutch Eredivisie match.
Following the violent behaviour of Vitesse Arnhem’s fans, the centre referee ended the match before the seven minutes injury time was exhausted.
According to a statement issued by the Eredivisie, the league’s governing body, the match was discontinued due to multiple crowd troubles, including the use of flares.
Okoye’s Sparta Rotterdam was leading 1-0 when tension boiled over, chiefly due to the superb performance from the goalkeeper.
Okoye saved a penalty on 65 minutes and successfully stopped nine shots from finding the back of the net.
Okoye’s eventful evening was cut short when he was first hit by an object thrown from the crowd in the first minute of added time before being confronted by a pitch invader a minute later.
The league body said an investigation will be initiated and a decision taken on the result of the match. “The match between Vitesse and Sparta has been discontinued tonight (March 4, 2022) at a 0-1 score due to fireworks from the (home) public,” the league body said.
