The Super Eagles star scored Twente’s second goal of the game on 14 minutes from a Luciano Narsingh’s assist after the homers had gone ahead a minute earlier when Narsingh was brought down by Marcos Senesi and Danilo netted from the penalty spot.

Feyenoord pulled one back in the 24th minute when Jens Toornstra lashed an excellent strike past Joel Drommel.
