The Super Eagles left-back netted his first goal for Portuguese champions Porto in their 2-0 win against Marseille in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League clash at Orange Vélodrome.
It was Sanusi’s ninth appearance for Porto who arrived in the summer from Santa Clara.

Sanusi logged 579 minutes in total before opening his account for the 2004 European champions.
Speaking after the game, the Porto number 12 told UEFA’s official website: “It was important for me to score my first goal for Porto and in the Champions League.
“I always dreamed of playing for a big club. I thank God to be at such a big club like Porto, to be able to play in the Champions League.
“We have to keep working like this. It’s a very happy day for me, the greatest since I arrived at Porto.
“We got three important points and congratulations go out to the whole team”.
Following the win against Marseille, Porto need one point from their last two matches to qualify for the last sixteen of the Champions League.
