The EFL Cup tournament kicked off across England on Tuesday, August 13th and a few Nigerian players featured for their respective clubs.
All Nigeria Soccer compiled a list of the Nigerian players who got some minutes on the pitch and those who were unfortunate on the day.
The encounter between Reading and Wycombe featured two Nigeria-eligible players, Ovie Ejaria and Fred Onyedinma.
The Liverpool loanee was in Reading's starting XI but couldn't find the back of the net and he was subbed off in the second half. Onyedinma was a second-half substitute.
The game ended 4-2 on penalties and it was Reading's victory after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
Semi Ajayi's West Brom suffered a 2-1 defeat to Millwall despite playing at home which was certain that home ground advantage would help the Baggies.
Ebere Eze did not make the matchday squad for Queens Park Rangers that won 5-4 on penalties over Bristol City having played to a 3-3 draw prior to that - Bright Osayi-Samuel and Aramide Oteh were on the bench throughout the encounter.
Chuks Aneke's side Charlton Athletic lost 5-3 to Forest Green Rovers during a penalty shootout - an unfortunate result for the former.
