UCL: Olayinka Break Inter Hearts in San Siro

Nigerian attacker, Peter Olayinka was on song for Slavia Prague in the illustrious UEFA Champions League as the 2019/2020 edition of the best club competition kicks off across Europe.
Traditional Italian club, Internationale hosted Slavia Prague on the familiar STADIO GIUSEPPE MEAZZA as Antonio Conte's had his first Champions League match in charge of Inter ended in a fortunate draw with Slavia Prague.

An injury-time equaliser from Nicolo Barella denied Slavia Prague a famous Champions League win over Inter at San Siro on Tuesday.

The champions of the Czech Republic were not expected to escape from a daunting Group F that also contains Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona but looked on course for a deserved victory in Milan through Peter Olayinka.

Slavia could have added to their tally and were punished in second-half stoppage time, as Barella's shot bounced through a crowded box and into the left-hand corner to ensure the game finished 1-1.
Peter Olayinka became just the fifth different Nigerian to score on their Champions League debut after Daniel Amokachi, Victor Ikpeba, Lucky Idahor and Yakubu.
