FC Lugano of Switzerland goalkeeper, Sebastian Osigwe is picking positives from his side’s 2-2 draw away to FC Zürich in the Swiss Super League, as he acknowledged how the team fought very hard and stayed focused even after having a player sent off.
Megasportsarena.com gathered that, while hinting that Lugano could have even pulled off a stunning win away to the more-favored hosts last weekend, Osigwe enthused that their performance under pressure is a sign of better things ahead of his club in the unfolding season.
He recounted how Alexander Gerndt gave Lugano the lead but Zürich hit back just before half-time courtesy Lasse Sobiech, after which Jonathan Sabbatini was shown red after getting two yellow cards; and Antonio Marchesano took advantage of the one man advantage to score the hosts’ second, but Stefano Guidotti denied them victory by netting a late equalizer.
That provided a strong basis for excitement and delight from Osigwe, and the former SC Kiel of Switzerland shot-stopper is now looking ahead to better days this season for Lugano, who are currently placed third with four points after two matches, while Zürich sit sixth with just a point.
The 26-year-old keeper, who has finally won the heart of Lugano’s coach, Maurizio Jacobacci and inspired his new side to a 2-1 victory against FC Luzern in their previous game, admitted he was thrilled with his side’s performance and expressed hope that it will mark a turning point in their form and aspirations for the entire season.
Osigwe took to social media to reveal his thoughts, as he praised his teammates for the fighting spirit they showed all through the game, while setting his mind on the next fixture ahead, and he tweeted gleefully: “Important point earned in a tough game. We fought to the end even with a man down! Unto the next one.”
