Nigerian striker, Mfon Udoh has shared the ‘awesome’ feeling of making his return from injury in Bashundhura King’s AFC cup win over Maziya.

The game on Monday, November 28, 2023 was a matchday five fixture of the AFC Cup with Mfon Udoh making his return from injury sustained in May.

The former Nigeria Premier Football League goal-king was named in the Bashundhara Kings starting XI by manager Oscar Bruzon for the home-game against their Maldivian opposition.
