Noah Okafor outshines Stephen Odey as Basel defeat Zurich in Swiss Cup semi-final



Both Nigerian strikers found the back of the net for their respective clubs at Letzigrund on Thursday

Noah Okafor outshined his compatriot Stephen Odey as Basel defeated Swiss Cup holders Zurich 3-1 in their first-leg semi-final game.

Okafor opened the scoring five minutes into the encounter after he was set up by Ricky Van Wolfswinkel to put his side on the path of victory.

Zdravko Kuzmanovic doubled Basel’s lead in the 87th minute while Abian Ajeti wrapped up the win. Odey’s late effort ended as a mere consolation goal

Okafor was replaced by Edon Zhegrova moments before the end of the game while Odey featured for the entire duration of the match and was cautioned in the 82nd minute.

The Nigerian strikers will be looking to continue their impressive form in the second leg at St. Jakob-Park on May 4.


Both players will hope to make the Super Eagles squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Nigeria are in Group B along with Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar.
