Nigerian born midfielder Solomon Udo lasted the full throttle as Armenia started the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers on good footing.
The central midfielder was integral to Armenia’s win against Liechtenstein at Rheinpark Stadion.
Udo combined alongside Artak Grigoryan in the middle of the park for Joaquin Caparros’ men.
Armenian FA started courting Udo in 2018 after noticing his versatility in midfield coupled with his trademark long-range strikes which earned him a comparison with Xavi Alonso.
Udo who began his football career in Africa’s oldest Local Government Area Ikot Ekpene first set foot in Armenia to sign the dotted lines for Ararat Yerevan as a 19-year-old.
Solomon Udo is the first Nigerian to don the Red-Blue-Orange Armenian tricolour for the European country.
The talented footballer lists Ararat Yerevan, FC Shirak Gyumri, FC Banants Yerevan, Ulisses, Ararat Yerevan, KAS Eupen and ASPIRE Senegal as his former clubs.
