Nigerian International and Montpellier attacker John Utaka has scored his first goal for the club in the 2012/13 season
Utaka’s strike in the game that played yesterday came in the 64th minute making it Montpellier’s second of the day against OGC Nice and it propelled them to victory with a final score of 3-1.
The attacker who made his Nigeria debut in 2002 and has made 43 appearances for the Super Eagles since then scoring six goals, latched on a sweet defence tearing pass from teammate Rémy Cabella after which he slotted the shot past opposition goal keeper; Joris Delle.
Though,Utaka was on the offside trap when he got the ball as replays showed but officials failed to spot the action as the attacker showed his happiness.
The 30-year-old was an integral figure for Montpellier as they romped to the 2011/12 Ligue 1 title.
He made 43 appearances for the club in all appearances last season netting 8 times.
The forward has yet to replicate that form as he picked up an injury early this season and missed crucial games.
