Unknown Nigeria striker Taofiq Jibril was named in the starting line up as Zilina drew 2-2 with Apollon in the Conference League on Thursday night.

The forward scored the equaliser for the Slovak club at the Štadión Pod Dubňom (Žilina).

Taofiq’s goal arrived in the 79th minute. It was his second of the competition this season.

The player offered a superb performance in the scorching heatwave that has been torturing Slovakia this week, with temperatures climbing to 38 degrees Celsius in several places.

Zilina had several promising opportunities to complete the turnaround in the second half, but none of them ended in a goal.
