Nigeria's number one goalkeeper Maduka Okoye helped his club Sparta Rotterdam to an important win in the Eredivisie on Saturday.

Okoye had a rare holiday as Sparta defeated their visitors Go Ahead Eagles 1-0 to give their fight against relegation a huge boost.

The 22-year-old smartly saved the two shots he faced en route to a third clean sheet of the season for Sparta in the Eredivisie.

Adil Auassar was, however, the hero of the day as his second-half strike proved to be the decisive winner for the struggling side.

With this result, Sparta Rotterdam are now just two points away from safety as they occupy 16th position on 20 points in the 18-man league.
