Brian Idowu Scores As Victor Moses Debuts For Spartak Moscow

On-loan Chelsea winger Victor Moses was introduced in the second-half which inspired Spartak Moscow to an excellent 3-2 win at Khimki.

Spartak Moscow were trailing 1-0 to a Mirzov effort and 22 minutes later, Moses’ side were 3-1 up thanks to goals from Kokorin, Ponce, and Larsson, as coach Domenico Tedesco’s men continued their excellent start to the season.

But Super Eagles defender Bryan Idowu’s 85th-minute goal, his first in the colours of Khimki since he joined on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow in August, sparked a tense few minutes in the closing stages.

But Spartak held on to claim their seventh win of the campaign and climb to second on the Russian Premier League table, level on points with leaders Zenit.

Khimki defender Idowu was a member of Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but he has not been invited to the Nigerian national team since the 2-2 draw in a friendly with Ukraine last year.
