Emenike Scores In Spartak's Win

Emenike, who just returned from a long injury layoff, scored Spartak Moscow's second goal on the stroke of full time after Aiden McGeady had given The Red-Whites a 52nd minute lead.

The former Fenerbahce man came on as a 63rd minute replacement for Yuri Movsisyan.

Emenike's first competitive game since his knee injury was as a second half substitute against Krylya Sovetov last Tuesday.

The 25-year-old striker, who was linked with a return to the Turkish top flight, has been recalled into the squad of Nigeria for their August 14 Nelson Mandela Challenge against South Africa in Durban.

Emenike endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines owing to a knee problem he suffered at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
