Nigeria forward Uchendu on target as Sporting Braga thrash CL Benfica

October 28, 2019 Off By Oha

Chinaza Uchendu was on the scoresheet as Sporting Braga secured an emphatic 4-0 win over CL Benfica in the Portuguese Liga BPI encounter on Sunday.

The Nigeria international, who was on target in Braga’s 5-1 victory over Maritimo a month ago, was in fine form to add to her goal tally and helped her side extend their winning streak this season.

The 21-year-old doubled the advantage for the hosts two minutes after Agata Pimenta’s opener just four minutes into the encounter.

Second-half strikes from Hannah Keane and Diana Gomes ensured Miguel Santos’ ladies secured their third win in a row at home.

The Super Falcons forward, who was in action for 68 minutes before being replaced by Francisca Cardoso, has now scored three goals in four games for Braga.

Cameroon’s Farida Machia played the last 10 minutes of the match after opening goal scorer Regina Pereira.
