Bologna give Okonkwo more game time….

Rising Nigeria teenage forward Orji Okonkwo got much more game time for Italian top-flight side Bologna on Sunday, but could not save them from a 0:2 loss at home to Atalanta in a Serie A clash.
Unlike his debut last weekend when he was introduced in 89th minute, the 18-year-old joined the fray on 72 minutes for Italian star Federico Viviani, with Bologna searching for goals after already conceding twice.
The 18-year-old is the first of his teammates that won the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, to break into the first team of a premier division club in Europe’s big leagues.
Bologna did not list compatriot and Rio Olympics star Sadiq Umar for the game.
