Nigerian Marvin Makes Debut In Real Madrid


The 20 year old Nigerian player, Marvin Olawale Akinlabi had made his debut appearance for Real Madrid first-team in their goalless draw against Real Sociedad in their La Liga opening fixture on Sunday.

Marvin was the second player who made his Real Madrid debut in La Liga on Sunday after Sergio Arribas came on for Vinicius Junior.

He moved to the Spanish capital in 2016 and had helped the Spanish giants lift the Uefa Youth League title last season with his contribution of a goal in seven matches, and he also scored three goals in 26 league appearances for Real Madrid Castilla.

The youngster is eligible internationally to play for three countries after he was born to a Nigerian father and a South Korean mother in Spain.

After his Sunday’s outing, he will be eager to earn more first-team action with the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the 2020-21 season.

Real Madrid hopes to secure their first win of the season when they visit Real Betis for their next La Liga game on Saturday.
