LANKY NIGERIAN MIDFIELDER DEBUTS FOR WEST BROM

25-year old Super Eagles international Semi Ajayi has made his debut appearance for Slaven Bilic’s West Bromich Albion. The tall midfielder on Tuesday was in action for the Baggies as they managed a 1-1 draw with his former side Rotherdam United.

As early as the second minute of the game, Ajayi made a late tackle on the opposition’s Freddie Ladapo which led to a penalty. and the team converted from the spot.

The Baggies were fortunate to get an equalizer through substitute Dara O’Shea who headed home from a Filip Krovinovic’s cross in the 63rd minute.

The former Arsenal man who only joined the Baggies on Saturday will hope to brush aside his disastrous start to life at the Baggies when they open their 2019/2020 Championship campaign against Nottingham Forest.
