La Liga: Super Eagles Defender Stops Real Madrid
Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo did well for his La Liga club CD Leganes to deny Real Madrid victory on Monday.
Both teams played a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Omeruo, who played for all 90 minutes of the encounter was able to man the defense and wade off threats from Real Madrid forwards.
Jonathan Silva put the host in front just one minute from half time but Karim Benzema drew level in the 51st minute of play.
Subsequent attacks from the Zinedine Zidane tutored side met a brick wall ably manned by Omeruo alongside Dimitrios Siovas, Unai Bustinza, Allan Nyom and Silva.
With Monday's draw, Leganes occupy the 11th spot on the La Liga table, while Real Madrid are 3rd.
