Chelsea Heap Praise On Omeruo After Masterclass Performance Against Iceland
Premier League powerhouse Chelsea have heaped praise on their player, Kenneth Omeruo, following his masterclass performance in the Super Eagles 2-0 win vs Iceland in their second game of the 2018 World Cup.

Omeruo joined The Blues in January 2012 from Nigeria Professional Football League outfit Sunshine Stars but has yet to make his competitive debut for the Londoners despite obtaining a work permit.

The central defender has been farmed out on loan to Turkish clubs Kasımpaşa and Alanyaspor, Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag, and he played for Middlesbrough in the Championship during the 2014-2015 season.

Omeruo penned a contract extension with Chelsea last summer, tying him to the club until June 2020, before he was loaned out to Kasımpaşa for the entirety of last season.

''What a performance from @omeruo22! 💪 #NGAISL,'' Chelsea tweeted

Chelsea also monitored the Nigerian Player of Year Victor Moses during the match against Iceland and their former player John Obi Mikel, who skippered the Super Eagles and played through the pain barrier in the closing minutes.

All the aforementioned players went the distance at the Volgograd Arena.
