Nigerian forward, Mercy Idoko, is basking in the glory of her first goal of the season for Racing Power FC in the 1a Divisão Women’s game in Portugal, following a thrilling match over the weekend.
This dynamic forward struck a brilliant first-half goal, igniting her team to a spectacular 2-0 victory against Marítimo at the Estádio do Marítimo last Sunday.
Notably, Jenny Vetter also displayed her scoring prowess, finding the back of the net for the Portuguese Liga BPI side, Racing Almada.
Following a tense start, it was the 20-year-old Nigerian forward, Mercy Idoko, who seized the opportunity, breaking the deadlock in the 34th minute.
Jenny Vetter further solidified their lead with a goal at regulation time, securing a well-deserved win for Racing Power.
Mercy Idoko’s excitement was palpable as she took to her social media page to share her joy over her first goal of the season and, of course, the victory.
She applauded her teammates for their determination, emphasizing that the team’s focus is now squarely on the upcoming game.
“First win, first goal, great attitude from my teammates. We move on to the next game,” she noted.
