NIGERIA’S Super Eagles had mixed fortunes at Easter Sunday as captain Mikel Obi went down with Tianjin TEDA while new blood Kayode Olanrewaju continued his scoring spree.

Mikel’s Tianjin were beaten 3-0 at home by Guangzhou Evergrande, in a match Brown Ideye featured for 90 minutes for the losing side.

Kayode Olarenwaju scored his 19th goal of the season in Austria Wien in the 3-0 demolition of Mattersburg in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, Osaze Odemwingie on Sunday made a winning debut with his Indonesian club Madurda United as he scored the second goal in the 73rd minute from the penalty spot in a 2-0 win over Bali United FC.
