The forward scored on his debut in the competition at Giuseppe Meazza, and is the only fifth Nigeria to do so.
He put the Czech Republic team ahead in the 63rd minute before Nicolo Barella saved Antonio Conte menâ€™s blushes with a late-gasp equaliser.

Amokachi managed the feat on November 25, 1992 as Club Brugge pipped CSKA Moscow 1-0, and became the first player to score in the new format of the competition.
After Ikpeba and Idahorâ€™s achievements, Aiyegbeni joined the exclusive list, scoring a hat-trick as Maccabi Haifa trounced Olympiacos in September 2002.
After a strong start against Inter, Olayinkaâ€™s Slavia Prague continue their chase for European glory when they welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Sinobo Stadium on October 2.
